Barn Owl Released

06 Aug 2019

We took in a grounded Barn Owl chick some weeks ago which we have hand reared. Once he was eating food own his own, we moved him to our large aviary, as it’s essential to minimise human contact with wild animals. If they get too tame, this can seriously threaten their chances of survival or […]

Swan Rescue

27 Jul 2019

This unfortunate swan managed to get a large fishing hook caught in his foot. This has now been removed by a vet and he’s with us whilst resting and completes a course of antibiotics. All looks positive for a release back with his partner in a few days time.  

Derek Trotters Arrives

19 Jul 2019

As soon as the three boys move to their new home, Derek Trotters arrives. Derek is a young male and so has a lot of energy and growing to do. He’s very sweet, we couldn’t let him live on his own and we have the perfect match. Betty has been with us for exactly a […]

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 […]
