“My girlfriend noticed the bird getting dragged in and out by the sea. It was using its wings to drag itself up the beach.
“It looked quite thin so probably needed a bit of feeding up.”
The couple put the bird in a box with some blankets to ‘de-stress,’ on the advice of Mousehole Bird Hospital, until a member of the RSPCB came to pick it up today.
