Gannet in Newquay

We received a call from Andy a member of the public that had spotted a large White bird on the beach with a possible broken wing. Trevor made a few phone calls in Cornwall and Andy picked up the bird and was able to take it straight to Jenny Haley Assistant Coordinator and Vet Nurse at Clifton Villa Vets, Newquay. On examining the bird she found that it was an adult Gannet with a very badly damaged wing, It was decided to euthanise the bird as the wing could not be saved as it had been twisted around several times and the bird was in distress.

Thank you to Andy and Clifton Villa Vets for acting so quickly.
