Sarah Moore meets bird rescuer Jean Hains, who launches stricken birds off the cliff-tops rather like a rugby ball. This is because when young Manx Shearwaters attempt to make their first flight from South West Wales to South America, they can often be swept back inland and once grounded, they can't take off again without help.

But there are tens of thousands of these beautiful birds, and Jean saves only a hundred a year. Is she wasting her time?
