Now it is roughly at this point that we spot a seagull with what appears to be a broken wing at the waters edge. Turning to a man walking his dog to ask if there was a rescue centre nearby, which there wasn't, we didn't know what to do, so sadly we had to leave the bird, but hoping someone from the area would help it. I have since learnt that if a bird has a broken wing it will not fix by itself and eventually the bird will die from starvation or get eaten by a predator. Even now I am embarrassed about not knowing what to do to help this poor animal, so having looked online, if this ever happens to you please call the RSPCA on 0300 1234 999 and follow their advice.
