According to residents, Oil-soaked heron was found dead on a golf course a few days after being spotted coated in oil after fishing in a dirty south London river.
The toxic oil leak in Beverley Brook, which runs through Richmond Park, was caused by “illegal flytipping,” according to Thames Water.
The perpetrator is unknown, however it is assumed to be a business firm.
Sarah Olney, the Lib Dem MP for Richmond Park, attempted to reassure her people that the impact on animals would be limited.
I took this photo of a heron in Richmond Park completely covered in oil presumably from the spill. Probably the same one as the one found dead later on New Malden golf course.
