The booby’s progress

Two or three weeks ago, an unusual red-footed avian arrived on our local beach and was synchronistically discovered by local resident, Gail Cohen. The red-footed booby, way off its expected flight path, has been slowly recovering its strength. HOT’s Chandra Masoliver,

Unexpected arrival: a red-footed booby

HOT’s Chandra Masoliver takes up the story of the red-footed booby that landed on St Leonard’s beach on 4 September. It was sent to the East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS) and then on to Mallydams Wood Wildlife Centre in Fairlight, where they are hoping it will survive. Chandra had the good fortune of seeing this very un-English bird because she works as a volunteer at Mallydams.
