Pots are a danger to birds

Posted on 06th December 2018 | in Letters & Email , Opinion

This is for the attention of the public but specifically the local fishermen, as it’s their lobster and crab pots which are unfortunately killing small birds.

The birds go into the pots looking for food (insects, fish etc) and can’t find their way out again. If all fishermen left their pots open, as some do, it would save unnecessary suffering and death for these birds. I would appeal to the fishermen and public to check the pots when passing them. I do this and have saved quite a few birds.
