A note to all fishermen
Date posted: Sunday 6th November 2016
Last Sunday John Lock along with another regular visitor to Home Park made a distressing discovery. An Egyptian Geese was in a particularly bad way. On inspection (the goose was very docile and ringed) they found a nylon filament fishing line wound tightly around both legs which they endeavoured to remove. but I am afraid the goose faced an uncertain future. Obviously there are more than enough Egyptian geese moving around the parks now, but this is an uncomfortable reminder of the risks waterbirds run.
I would show photos to illustrate the point but really they are too distressing.
