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 to be fed every hour.
Yesterday alone, we had a baby blackbird, two baby pigeons and a nest of 6 thrushes, all in a day! A dog had got hold of this nest full and pulled it out of a hedge, one thrush died shortly after arrival, one died over night. Fortunately these guys are now eating well, the first critical 24 hours is over.
