Caithness in the News

Not to be out done by the Montrose team the Caithness team where today called out to a Black Back Gull in need of help at Scrabster Harbour.

The bird had fallen into some oil and was completely covered. The gull was attended by Area Coordinator Paula Gent and medic Karen Munro and after working out a 'jumping' (catching) technique the bird was rescued to the safety of the holding unit for medical attention and cleaning. Thanks also goes to Sinclair Manson for all his help and advice for dealing with this rescue.
