Bird in the Bag

Today after hail and rain there was a break in the weather and the sun came out to we went to try and find the stoat. We unfortunately didn't see him as it was busy on the canal. 

We carried on walking and didn't see any wildlife so went to the sea cliffs. Here the gulls and fulmars are back and ready to lay eggs.

As we neared the end of the walk we came back to the canal and saw something not too good. A gull trapped in a plastic bag.

His head and wings where through and he was flying around so we couldnt help him. He had other gulls pecking the bag so hopefully they will tear it and free him. His legs are trapped inside so he cannot land safely so may be stuck in the air until he tires or the bag falls off.

You often see turtles, not here, tangled in plastic bags but I have not heard of a bird stuck in one.
