A hobbled gull and wooden waders


Poor old Krusty the Caspian Gull was still looking in a bit of a state today, with his long legs all tangled up, but at least he came over to have a look at our event featuring “The Flock”.
600+ carved and individually painted waders – you can see a gallery from the event at facebook.com/seftoncoast
Managed to attract a few hundred people too, which was good on World Shorebird Day


Must see if something can be done to help poor Krusty…
After work I nipped up to Marshside but the wind was blowing cold and the site was quiet, despite growing numbers of Wigeon, Teal, Snipe and Blackwits.
Hirundines never looked so miserable.

  1. John you say “must see if something can be done to help poor Krusty”. I hope that you chaps can come up with a plan, that right leg looks really bad. I was wondering if the use of a rocket net had been considered.
