The Heron we admitted mid August has been released today and what a sight it was to see such a large majestic bird fly.
This chap arrived emaciated, grounded and very weak, he could hardly stand. X-rays didn’t revieil anything untoward, however we found a high worm burden in his poo.
Initially we tube fed him until he had the strength to feed himself, then he was wormed and then moved to an aviary to fatten up and strengthen his muscles before today’s release.
It’s moments like this that make animal rescue worthwhile, it’s such a privilege to rehabilitate and release such beautiful beings.
