Wild Birds

At the present time we are unable to rescue wild birds and would suggest that if you find an injured wild bird or a bird that has been picked up by a cat you take it to your local wildlife hospital.

If the bird does not have feathers (nestling), you can see the nest and the parents are about, place it back in the nest otherwise contact your local wildlife centre for advice.

If the bird is uninjured, especially if it is a young bird with feathers (fledgling), please make sure that the bird is safe from harm (move to a safer place if necessary) and leave the bird where it is to give it the best chance of survival. Wild birds will often spend a day or so on the ground while their wings strengthen.

A visit to the local veterinary practice could be very stressful for a wild bird but this is always an option if there is no other.
