I took the bird to Dr Bryan Gartrell on Friday  morning and he removed the hook. It is back at the sanctuary on antibiotics and pain relief. At this stage we don't know if it will ever be able to use its leg again. We need to stop fishing in the Panmure Basin!

This black backed gull was brought into the Sanctuary by Christina who found it in the Panmure Basin starving. When it first came in it had to be tube fed for as it was too weak to eat for itself.

After the storm last night, the pied shag colony at the Panmure Basin, managed to hang on,  but were hungry and desperate for food to feed their babies this morning. 


There are several nests with babies needing to be fed to ensure their survival.


Due to poor water quality and over fishing in the Basin,  the colony needs supplementary feeding,  otherwise they will likely stop breeding and eventually die out.


The photos are from earlier this year and show some of the colony being fed in the evening.
