Last September I was staying with some friends in North Devon. There house is close to the sea and a daily ritual throughout the year is a swim in the sea. It had been very windy cold the day before and I was not keen, but ran as fast as I could into the sea to get it over with. I noticed what I thought was a pigeon in the waves. When I got closer I saw it was a Manx Shearwater blown into the sea by the strong wind. I caught the bird ,avoiding the very sharp beak- holding it my hands was amazing. It was not in bad condition. So I took it to the nearest high point of the cliffs that faced the beach to let it recover and then watched it fly off.
