I told this story on my journal yesterday but for anyone who didn't read it here it is again.
Last Saturday I saw this poor seagull trapped under netting on an office block roof. He was unable to get out and seemed resigned to sitting there waiting to die. Another seagull had already died there, you can see him in the centre of the photo tangled in the netting.

I called the RSPCA and an inspector came out. She called the fire brigade to climb on the roof and rescue the poor soul, it was his lucky day!

The fireman climbed onto the roof and gently cradled the frightened gull in his arms, he brought him down to the RSPCA inspector.

Then he went back to free the dead gull and brought him down too

They were watched closely by these two seagulls who had sat watching the trapped bird all day, I wonder what they'd be saying if they could talk?!

The rescued bird was taken to the RSPCA sanctuary, he was weak with hunger but was given a meal and kept overnight before being set free next day.
I hope the gull will keep away from netting in future, he was so lucky that I spotted him this time.... next time he may not be so lucky!
