At 1am Friday morning I received a called from a lady on St Leonards beach, East Sussex via East Sussex WRAS's rescue line. I alerted Alex Levine BDMLR's Out of Hours Co-ordinator and a text message was sent out to BDMLR medics across East Sussex. Local experienced Medic Stephen Marsh got dressed and headed out whilst myself and partner Kathy Martyn drove across from Uckfield.
East Sussex WRAS and BDMLR have been called out to look at a large mass of Goose Barnicles washed up on Eastbourne Beach. Local newspaper the Eastbourne Herald emailed photos of the strange looking objects on the Holywell beach at Eastbourne. They were sent to Jamie Dyer BDMLR’s Scottish Co-ordinator (and former Sealife Manager) to identify.
East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) received an unusual call which at first they thought was going to be a hoax. Sussex Police phoned at midday on Saturday reporting that a deer had been seen on the beach near Seaford sailing club.
