Crisis over gull chicks as Brighton rescue team called 60 times a day
3:30pm Monday 8th July 2013 in News
An animal rescue shelter is being inundated with young herring gulls.
Roger’s Wildlife Rescue, in Downs Valley Road, Brighton, has been inundated with calls about young herring gulls over the last month.
Roger and Fleur Musselle are struggling to cope after taking care of more than 170 chicks and with more arriving every day.
The rescue team are receiving 60 calls a day.
Mr Musselle said: “Until herring gulls are three to four weeks old their legs are not strong enough to keep them on the roof, especially in high winds, but now they are stronger, every effort should be made to reunite them with their own parents and the roof where they have fallen from.”
