Tawny Owl

Posted by Jon in Animal Hospital, News, Wild Birds on Wednesday 31/08/2022 15:56 +01:00.

Today we have taken on another bird of prey, we now have 3 tawny owls, a barn owl, a buzzard and a kestrel currently in our care.

This chap was found on an A road, a member of the public thankfully stopped and manged to catch him and bring to us.

There are no obvious injuries or illnesses, we’ve checked him including his body, wings, legs, eyes and a check for trichomoniasis. He is though very thin, weak and has flat fly, a parasitic fly. He has already eaten food with some supplement so we are hopeful that’s the issue is nothing serious, the signs are he’s been grounded and weak from starvation.
