Injured Hitchhiker

Any advice on how to capture this little sooty tern? His feet are tangled in a longline net. Email Diane at dianeselkirk dot com. We tried grabbing him and can get within .25 meters. Next up we'll try throwing a light towel over him. Our calm night turned exciting when a squall came through. While doing 12 knots under spinnaker our AIS alarm went off telling us we were on a collision course with a freighter. Meanwhile Charlie found our sooty and kept sneaking out to visit him on the roof. Managed to snuff the spinnaker, avoid the freighter and convince Charlie that the sooty doesn't want to play. Light winds this morning.
