i heard of kemp turtles appearing along the north-western coast of the uk
a few days back. in fact one was found within mortar distance from fakes cave.
i am led to understand that there are only 1000 female breeders in the gulf
tonight i shall be scouring a mile long stretch of the waterline in the hope
of finding any. husky will assist as well as grandson. it was below freezing
last night so with that in mind we shall initiate operation cold-stunned.
this 5000 mile journey they have undertaken blows my mind. to come all this
way to perish is tragic.
our last rescue mission involved two infant pipistrelle bats. sadly one died
but the other flourished and became part of the family until the bat sanctuary
had digs available. don't worry we are accredited via the sanctuary to handle
and bring back to health these poor critters. it was heartbreaking to let go,
however, a postive feeling endures to this day.
back to the kemp. as the linky states there are around 1000 breeding females.
this figure astounded me and i feel some time is required to at least
search out any of these poor critters rather than put it on the backburner.
