We have admitted another heron into our wildlife hospital this week. This chap was found grounded.
Following an X-ray, it was discovered he has a fracture wing, fortunately it’s a crack in one of the bones and not a break. Bones take around 4 weeks to heal and so he’ll be with ius for at least that duration. In 4 weeks or so we’ll have him X-Rayed again and if the bone has healed, he’ll go into a large aviary for rehabilitation ready for release.
