Oreo a lucky guillemot rescued after being caught in human waste and record numbers of wildlife helped by GSPCA in 2021

Submitted by Steve on 12:55, 14th Jan, 2022 | 0

Early today the GSPCA had a call about a seabird tangled in fishing line.

The bird was discovered by mother Emma Lancaster and daughter Hallie who were out for an early morning sea swim at Belle Grève Bay.

The bird was so tangled it could neither fly or swim.

Thankfully the finders were able to free the bird but concerned for its welfare brought the bird to the GSPCA.

The guillemot arrived at the GSPCA just after 7am where GSPCA Manager Steve Byrne was able to accept Oreo and check the bird over and give the care it needed.

In February 2019 the States of Guernsey Planning Department gave the approval for the plans for the proposed new Wildlife Hospital at the GSPCA, but sadly due to covid and the global pandemic the project was put on hold.

Nearly 3 years later the GSPCA are once again looking to the future for this much needed facility which is planned to replace a number of old buildings some which date back to the 1940’s.
