Strangled Sea Bird

Going through folders on my pc, I remembered a series of 25 photos I took of the corpses of sea birds on Chesil Beach, Portland, Dorset, UK in 2002. The walk was a 15 min stretch at the most and I don’t think I photographed all of them.

The discarded nylon lines of fishermen have claimed the life of many a beautiful bird and this Gannet was one of them. Please take your rubbish home!
