Birds trapped down chimneys are an increasingly common call at this time of year. The unfortunate bird is often blown into the top and doesn’t have the room to get back out!
Luckily for this pigeon, it had landed on an easily accessible ledge and Simon was quickly able to pull it free. Its time in the chimney had taken its toll, however, and the pigeon was very thin. It would not have survived a rescue-release.
It was taken back to the hospital for some R&R and responded well. After a few days of food and a final vet check it was set free once again. Hopefully it will avoid chimneys this time!
