Tawny Owl Rescue

Posted by Jon in Animal Hospital, News, Wild Birds on Friday 02/04/2021 11:10 +01:00.

Wildlife is arriving think and fast, in the past few days we’ve had several hedgehogs, several pigeons, a fox cub, two wild rabbits and two tawny owls.This photo is one of the Tawny Owls who arrived yesterday after being hit by a car, we were sure he had a broken left wing which is often fatal for birds of prey. We had his wing X-ray’d today to be sure, as they have to hunt for their food, they have to be perfect flyers before we can release. This image shows that we were correct, thankfully though its a clean break to a minor bone. We are hopefully with anti-inflammatory painkillers and lots of rest, the wing bone will knit back together correctly.
