An oil-covered seabird from Alderney has been taken in by the GPCSA.

The guillemot, affectionately named 'Jack The Mot', was rescued by the Alderney Wildlife Trust and cared for by the Alderney Animal Welfare Trust for ten days.

Jack was then given a ride on an Aurigny flight to the GSPCA's headquarters, where he is now being rehabilitated.

The Alderney Wildlife Trust praised the teamwork involved in the rescue effort.

The GSPCA will now care for Jack until he is well enough to be released. The charity takes in over 1,500 sick and injured birds each year from across the Bailiwick.
