Heron

14 May 2019

We don’t take Herons in very often, when we do they have usually come on the wrong side of man. Often they have been been shot with air rifles, swallowed plastic or tangled up with fishing wire. This chappie though is a bit of a puzzle. Rescued from Attenbourough Natutre Reserve, he came to us all […]

Hedeghogs Released

29 Apr 2019

In recent weeks we had been releasing hedgehogs but then due to unseasonably hot weather with no rainfall we stopped again! One of our hibernating hedgehogs also only woke up last week and even then needed a little encouragement to venture out of a very large, warm nest! Thank goodness we now have some rainfall […]

Rabbits, Rabbits, Rabbits

16 Mar 2019

Rabbits, rabbit, rabbits!!!!! The situation with unwanted rabbits isn’t getting any better, this week we have had separate calls to take in 26, yes 26 in a week! Of these, we have managed to take 10 in today, sadly we don’t have room for the other 16. While some of these have been well looked […]

Ewe Rescued

24 Jan 2019

This lovely young Ewe (to the RHS on the first pic) has just come to us as a stray. She was found on public land miles from any farm or other sheep, with no ear tag we are unable to locate her owner. She’s very nervous, not surprising considering her ordeal, being all alone. She […]

Meet Mr Piggie

19 Jan 2019

Meet Weebo, he has recently come in to the sanctuary. His story is one we hear far too often, a person who bought a so called “micro pig” which has now grown too large. Weebo is only 10 months old, he’s actually small for a pig, he has a few more years of growing to […]

Abandoned Bunnies Rescued

18 Jan 2019

This week we have taken in another pair of abandoned rabbits. This beautiful and very friend pair of girls were found dumped in a layby next to a busy road. Fly tipped, thrown away as if life doesn’t matter. Domestic rabbits would not stand a chance in the wild, if not taken by a fox, […]

Four Foxes Released

06 Oct 2018

You may remember that back in May we rescued 4 fox cubs. They had been found cuddling their dead mother. Had they not been found, they would have certainly perished. The great news it that these four siblings have been successfully hand reared by us and are now wild, living in the countryside enjoying life. […]

Rescued Goose

08 Aug 2018

On Sunday we were called to see if we could rescue a poor Canadian Goose at the Riverside Festival, he had collapsed amongst the crowds of people. We soon caught him and put him into a goose bag to safely transport him back to our wildlife hospital, then just as we were leaving, the Festival […]
