Busy Night For WRAS

eastbourne buzz news - Gannet wras
 

Last night (7 June) was one of the busiest night of the year for an East Sussex animal charity.

The Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service were called to casualties across the county, with 11 volunteer rescuers on the road at one point.

The bad weather washed a jackdaw and two gull chicks from the roofs in Eastbourne, whilst another gull chick and jackdaw fell from nests elsewhere in town. A fox suffering from mange and open wounds was also caught in the town and a gannet was also rescued at Sovereign Harbour.

They also dealt with a number of call outs in Seaford, Heathfield and Uckfield.

The busy spell has continued this morning with a duckling and three gull chicks helped in Eastbourne.
