Rescue

This little one looked like he'd gone 10 rounds with Tyson, suffering a wound to his side and bruising across his abdomen and the entirety of his back. But, clearly, he's the Rocky of robins, because he's back up and ready to fight on! Literally, this helpless nestling survived a predator that is 1000 times his size!


Rehabilitation

Is there anything more inspirational than the strength of our beloved wildlife?!

Placed on a course of antibiotics and pain relief to give him a helping hand, he was now going to require feeding every 20mins from dawn till dusk.

Thankfully, our dedicated foster team were up for the task, and after 10 days he was finally ready to return to the centre and be upgraded to a flight cage. Here he will spend the next week or so building up his flight ability and his foraging skills, before he moves outside to an aviary to acclimatise to the weather.
