Wildlife

Each year we recieve a number of injured or orphaned local wildlife, We are not a wildlife charity, but we will do what we can for them. The care, treatment, operations and medication needed to return them to the wild is all funded by ourselves and thankfully received donations from the public that bring wildlife to us.

Hedgehog at only four days old.

Duck

” Chris P” Duckling at 2 days old. Crispy was only a day old when a cat took him from his mum and siblings, more than likely the family were on the move and Crispy either got separated or the cat nabbed the last in the line without mum knowing. For the time being he lives with Melissa and has a lot of fun learning to dive in the bath tub.

Hedgehogs to small to hibernate, each hoglet or urchin cost 100 pounds to get them through the winter to be released in late spring, our record so far has been 9 Hedgehogs over one winter. Hedgehogs should be at least 600g by October time, most of our young hedgehog only weigh 200g and we have had ones as small as 120g. These will not have enough body fat to see them through the winter and will die without our help.

Young pigeon being tube fed.       Abigale fox

Hercules is our diabetic hedgehog, found “out during the day” he was displaying abnormal hedgehog behaviour, a chance urine dipstick confirmed that he had excess glucoes. He now lives with Melissa as he can not be released back into the wild un-controled, he is being treated with a diabetic diet and lots of TLC.

“Frodo” was found at the bottom of an oak tree, he’d been there for two days and was very weak, cold and in need of some intensive care. Once he was back to health he joined other orphaned badgers to be released at a man made set in a very protected area as a new family group.
