The end of the baby bird season

September 7, 2019

Well, it's been another VERY busy year for baby birds at our rescue sanctuaries; quite literally tens of thousands of birds have been admitted, and once again a huge number successfully returned back to the wild. Alas, there will always be some who don't make it - but at least both YOU and the Sanctuary concerned tried their best, and indeed made a huge difference.


The baby birds still coming in will dwindle down now to the wood pigeons, collared doves, and just a few of the late migratory birds - let us hope that the autumn weather is kind and allows them to grow up quickly and safely.


The wildlife sanctuaries will actually get busier now with the influx of hedgehogs too small/sickly to hibernate, and people do need to appreciate that from time to time these centres may close to new admittances due to being FULL. Birds generally have a quick throughput in a sanctuary environment; mammals take much longer.


A huge thank you to everyone involved in rescues worldwide - both finders, saviours and rehabilitators.
