I told you previously that I live close to a Nature Reserve and therefore various small wild animals roam our garden from time to time. The photo below is a Gannet that we find dead in my front garden a year ago. It was probably bitten by a big dog because the neck was broken when I took it to the reserve office. We often take a picnic basket on a Suday morning for a walk about in the reserve.

For the good deed I received free lifetime membership and a key to the main gate so I can visit after hours for a walk in the reserve.

Poor thing. Interesting creature. His body is a lot like a domestic cat. That's nice they rewarded you with free membership and a key! I'd enjoy going to a place like that any time I wanted. I hope you'll show more of the wildlife in your area. Thanks! :D

very interesting. It looks like something that would be either uncommon or rare.
