LEAD

Something I was not aware of was the amount of damage being done by people using lead bullets [I wish I did not have to write this word], lead sinkers, hooks etc. This debris which is left in our waterways from fishermen and in carcasses left by humans is being ingested by our birds, specifically the eagles and the owls. It is said on the Owlrehab.org website that,

“It only takes a fragment the size of rice to poison or kill an eagle”

So much damage being done which could be easily avoided.
