A Dreadful Sight!

At the railway bridge, just upriver from Hirst Wood today (Monday), the body of a Grey Heron was dangling from a tree. The bird had got caught in fishing line and its shoulder and head was surfing on the surface of the river. The condition of the head would suggest the bird died some time ago. I could not reach the body as the line came from two different branches on a tree overhanging the river. A very sorry spectacle.
