Relocating, relocating...

We have another run on tomorrow (Sunday 11th Feb) to relocate some birds for their final stage of rehabilitation from Meltham Wildlife Rescue to our reserves at Wigton where the staff at Knoxwood Wildlife Rescue will care for them at this final stage.


We also take the opportunity to take up donations of bric-a-brac, towels, newspapers, bird/dog/cat food for use on the reserves (yes, the gulls can eat dog and cat food!), and I am informed this morning that there is space in the van for some more items if you can drop them at the Three Owls Home Reserve site at Rochdale before 10am on Sunday.


Many thanks to you all for your continued support; through working with a number of different wildlife rescue centres, we are all able to help a much greater area of wildlife than if we were working alone.
