8 Orphaned Ducklings arrive

16 Jun 2013

Early this morning 8 orphaned Mallard Ducklings arrived, mum was nowhere to be seen and so if left unattended, they would not have stood a chance. These really cute fluff balls are all now tucked up together, on a heat pad in our animal hospital, where we are also caring for many other different animals, […]

Injured Collard Dove

08 May 2013

This is a lucky Collard dove, we found him at the sanctuary, grounded and  immobilised due to a broken left leg, broken in two places. We swiftly splinted the leg and put him in a cage for rest and rehabilitation. He certainly chose the right place to get a broken leg!  

Pair of Book Ends

27 Apr 2013

At the sanctuary we receive calls at all times of day and night, not easy when we also work for a living, sometimes when we return home the voice mail is full and we have to prioritise the return calls. Last night we took two calls around midnight, one was for these two beautiful Doves. A member of the public found these two birds just […]

This Tawny Owl was brought to us from Shipley County Park, where he was found lying on the ground, cold, wet and at deaths door. After a few hours in an incubator, he was warm enough to be force fed and treated. Over the next few days he gained strength, within a week he was eating by himself. […]

Mallard and her Ducklings saved from a Sticky End

This mother Mallard nests on the roof of the QMC Hospital every year to rear her young, the maintenance staff there take care of her and transport her young to water when ready. Unfortunately last week, roof repairs were carried out and mum and ducklings walked through wet sealant covering themselves in a sticky mess. Three of her chicks didn’t make it to us, […]
