Another day on the docks and another seagull rescue. A big Blackback gull was hanging around and it was soon discovered it had a treble fish hook caught in the corner of it's mouth. Gloucester Seafood Display Auction dock worker John Burnham sprang into action and using the temptation of a fresh mackerel, captured the wounded gull. Surgery followed,a successful one at that, and the gull was off with a fresh fish as a reward for being a good patient!

"Gimpy" is a gull that was nursed by the dock workers when it was a chick. It had fallen off the roof on to the dock and injured it's leg. Other than a limp, "Gimpy" is doing just fine.
