The main reason for the admission of garden birds are cat attacks especially in the spring. This is because birds are very vulnerable as they fly back and to, to the nest to feed their young. Cats catch on to this pattern and it often ends up with a fatality. The ones that get injured can be treated but not always successfully. This leads to nests of birds with no parents. If the cat doesn’t get them first you can bring them in to us and we can rear them on. An emergency food for fledgling is pedigree chum puppy food.
Orphans come to us in all shapes and sizes from tiny wrens to large birds like crows and wood pigeons. Each one has a different nutritional need. So it is important to get them to a rescue centre ASAP.
