Animals trapped in netting are a common call for us at this time of year, but herons are not the usual culprit. This particular bird had become tangled in pond netting after trying to get to some fish and was unable to escape.
Simon and two of our work-experience volunteers, Lars and Rachel (who were big fans of Wildlife SOS when it aired on television) set off to help and soon had the heron cut free. Unfortunately though, the netting had done a little too much damage and the bird had to come back to the centre for treatment.
Luckily, though, it was only a few days before it could take to the air again once more!
