This sad image from our correspondent Jingle Bangles. He tells us this is the fourth dead heron he's seen in the area from the Jubilee Bridge to the harbour walls since June. This pictures was taken by the West Pier. Recently he contacted the appropriate department of Northern Constabulary. Birds, of course, do die of natural causes but four dead herons in this stretch seems a lot. If anyone has any information on anyone harming wildlife they should contact the Wildlife Crime officers at Northern Constabulary.
