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 Released

Amongst many jobs completed today, we released the male swan we took in last week. He came to us with a large fishing hook through his foot, this caused a lot of swelling and infection. This large boy has been with us for a week whilst on antibiotics, each day he has been getting stronger […]

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.  

Barn Owl

24 Jun 2019

Heron

This chappie though is a bit of a puzzle. Rescued from Attenbourough Natutre Reserve, he came to us all […]

Seagull Rehab

28 Jul 2018

Based as far away from the sea as we possibly can be it isn’t that often we get in gulls. However they are well known scavengers at tips and do come inland to see what human food they can scrounge. This cocky young gull came in last week and is eating all on his own. […]

Little Owl

29 Jun 2018

This little fella came in with a broken shoulder and broken leg. We took time looking at radiographs and discussing his recovery and surgery/pinning of bones. He underwent surgery and has now had his splints and bandages off, his muscles seem to be building back up every day and he will soon go into an […]
