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 Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) volunteers have been out and about today (Wednesday) rescuing oiled seabirds on our coastline. 7 call-outs were received by WRAS today, but several of them had returned to the sea when rescuers arrived.
