SEE HOW WE HELP THE BIRDS IN OUR CARE
SOME OF THE DAILY TASKS WE DO
Juvenile little owl came in late yesterday afternoon after sadly getting stuck in a car after a collision. He has made the night, had a little feed this morning and some anti-inflamitory medication to help with the concussion and head trauma and is now resting again on his heat mat.
SPARROW HAWK CHICKS
he baby sparrow hawks have gone free. They fledged beautifully but will have a food support just whilst they are fully finding their feet and wings. Sparrow hawks are quite difficult to find release sites for sadly due to their reputation, but thankfully a kind supporter agreed to take in our babies and give them the best support and and habitat to help them hack back to where they belong. A great team effort indeed x
RED KITE RELEASE
The red kite is free once more. These birds will always be my heart bird and every time we set another one free after illness or injury, my heart always misses a beat. She flew round and over the lake where she was first found, amazing ❤️
It's been another busy week seeing many casualties coming in. Sadly several were too weak or poorly to survive, but at least they were safe and comfortable in thier final hours. Here are some of the stunning birds that have recovered and will soon head back to the norfolk skies. We had a late admission on Wednesday evening of a red kite from Carbrooke, she sadly was very thin and dehydrated, but is eating well and looking much happier and today moved to an avairy
A busy few days and many miles traveled seeing birds coming in from Cambridge, castleacre, north walsham and beccles. We have also been out and about visiting new hack sites cross norfolk and Suffolk getting sites all lined up ready for next year's babies.
TAWNY OWL RELEASE
What a lovely tawny owl release this evening out near Colchester. This lil guy came in feeling a little under the weather and low on weight. A bit of tlc, antibiotics and a good feed up and he was ready to go back where he belongs, and what a lovely home he has where he will be kept a close eye on to make sure he stays fit and healthy.
TAWNY OWL RELEASE
A lovely tawny release this evening. This lil guy came in after being found on the road, he suffered a little concussion but after a little rest and tlc he was ready to fly free once again. It is so lovely to see these guys all go back out to where they belong, we always make sure adults go back as close to where they came from as possible and back to their territory.
BARN OWL CHICKS
The two baby barn owls are out to stretch their wings today and will soon head out to their hack avairy ready for freedom once again.
What a stunning site for a hack avairy for the hobby, he needs to moult out after a tussle with a car knocking his primary feathers out.
When babies come in we try to encourage them to feed on their own as soon as possible, this helps with them not becoming imprinted on us humans.
This lil guy came in yesterday, sadly he has a fracture to the leg, the good bit is that he is still very young so his bones will grow and heal without the need for surgery.
TAWNY OWL CHICKS
The first of the 3 tawny babies have been let out today, they are growing well and now it's time to find their wings. We will continue to feed the lil guys to help them integrate back to the wild x
The babies are all growing and doing well, the little barn owl came in from Suffolk wildlife Trust yesterday after getting himself into a spot of bother then taking a little swim. He has eaten well and nice and dry and warm bless him
We are all set up at Swanton Morley vintage show, pop along and see us and some of the lovely engines on show too.
Remember the stunning light phased buzzard that came in after being clipped by a car ? Well here she is going back yesterday where she belongs ❤
The baby has moved out to the avairy today so he / she can start stretching those magnificent wings ❤
The little hobby is doing well and out in the avairy. He is in need of a good moult after loosing the primary feathers on his wing. Hopefully with good food and plenty of sunshine we will have him back on the wing in no time.
The last of the tawny babies have gone to their hack avairy and are settling in well and taking in their new surroundings. These guys will be let out in a week or twos time with food offered for several weeks. We will monitor them with our wild life cameras so we can see how they are doing and of course we will keep you all updated on all of the baby floofs as they all make their way back to the wild 🥰
This lil fella came in today after his tree and nest came down yesterday, sadly his nest mate didn't make it , but this lil guy is doing well and eating nicely on his own.
The next lot of baby tawny owls have moved out into an avairy so they can start stretching their wings ready to go off to their hack avairy on Saturday 🥰
THREE MORE CHICKS
And the next 3 are up and perching and will be ready to head to their hack avairy over the weekend. It is so rewarding getting all of these magnificent beings back out to the wild where they belong ❤️
1 of the 3 kestrel releases today. The little lady was from Welney, she had small fractures but not needing any surgery just time and TLC. The male was from Terrington St Clements, he was found hungry but no innures and just needed food and time. Sadly the weather wasn't as good as it has been but all 3 were flying and ready to go back out. Thank you to you supporters for finding these birds and getting them to us for care. A great team effort indeed x
3 of the tawny babies have now moved to their hack avairy ready to head back out to the wild.
A bit of morning cuteness to start the bank holiday off. Lil dude was hiding whilst his house was being cleaned ♡ ❤️
The older babies are growing well ready to move to their hack avairy on Sunday and the 3 smaller babies have now moved out to an aviary in preparation for their hack aviary.
