Going Up In The World

17th February 2023 – Southwark Park
We were called to attend a coot trapped in a tree in Southwark Park. The bird was trapped in a mass of tree seeds high up in the canopy. While our rescuer Andy has many tricks at his disposal to catch wildfowl in need, mountaineering does not appear on his CV and sensibly he called in a higher power. London Fire Brigade were kind enough to send a turntable ladder after being called and Andy’s skills were put to use from the platform as he was lifted close to the casualty. A video of his exploits can be seen on this link. We do very much appreciate LFB coming out to help with this rescue and they have our, and Andy’s, heartfelt thanks.
