Marc Davison and the amazing tale of “Puffin Billy”
TLW have a hero in our midst!
When out on one of his regular early morning jaunts on the beach at Tynemouth Longsands with his faithful companion Stella the dog, Marc noticed a baby puffin in the water in serious distress.
Without a second thought for his own well being he rushed to the aid of the precariously positioned puffin, removing it from the swell and took it home.
Marc contacted the local Wildlife Sanctuary and took Puffin ‘Billy’ (as Marc was now calling him) to Blyth Wildlife Rescue to start his recovery.
Marc said: “If I had not done something to help the poor bird it might not have survived.”
Billy is making great progress and will soon be released back into the wild.
