Gull and monofilament fishing line.

I came across this gull in the stream at St.Ives today, it's badly entangled in monofilament fishing line possibly with a fish hook in its throat .

It was active and flying so no realistic chance of catching it to release it from its plight.

Very sad to see but I think we do need to see it to be reminded of the harm we can do to wildlife, often unintentionally!
