Baby Thrush Rescue

17 Jun 2012

This time of year is so hectic for us, as all the baby birds and mammals come in. We are so full now, that we are having to try and divert them elsewhere, as hand rearing so many animals is such a drain on our time and even harder on work days. Some of these guys need […]

Tawny Owl Chick

This little chick was found on the forest floor with no sign of the parents. The chick came to us in reasonable health, although he/she would not have survived long on the ground with no parents. After a hours or so in an incubator to get him warm, we could feed him. Owl’s have to […]

Mallard Duckling

29 Apr 2012

This young mallard duckling has been with us for a week now and doing well. The duckling was found on its own, with no parents around or any other ducklings. It can be quite difficult to rear single ducklings as they can become quite stressed and withdrawn on their own, constantly crying for their parents, fortunately this chap has done well […]

Springtime Orphans

Last weekend we rescued this chap, he was found living on his own, in a shallow stream. He kept wandering onto a busy road and was attacked by kids who threw stones at him. The local villagers were obviously concerned when he hadn’t left after a week, and tried to call the RSPCA with little […]
