Aw! Bless! ๐Ÿ’•

So very sad, thankful some survived, well done also to Network Rail for saving these ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

If you need a place to release when fully grown, the fields around unstone are quite wild, we've started seeing deer around here recently!

๐Ÿฆ†Hiccup and Robin ๐Ÿฆ†are all grown up now and have started leaving the duck yard for several hours at a time some days to have a fly around. It'll not be long until the leave us for pastures new entirely. Before winter arrives, the ducklings will shed their ducking feathers and grow new feathers that will resemble the feathers of their respective adult genders.๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿ’›

When looking after Wildlife we believe it important that the animals get to interact with those of their own kind. They can copy eachothers behaviours and keep eachother company. It also help with keeping them 'wild' and means they can be released together. Going into the big wide world with a friend is much less daunting.๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›

Thank you to all our supporters who make it possible to continue our work through donations.

๐Ÿฆ‰Science and Hooter๐Ÿฆ‰ weren't quite strong enough to be released with Lock, E.T, Snowy and Paul. We are very short of space at the Sanctuary though at the moment with more animals coming in everyday needing veterinary care. These two beauties now just need a quite place to continue feeding and build strength so have been moved to an experienced foster home until they are ready.๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’›

We are desperately trying to raise funds to increase treatment units in our hospital. If you, your business, group, club or school would like to sponsor a unit for ยฃ24.99 please either give us a call or follow the link below for more information.

Release day for Lock, E.T, Paul and Snowy. Unfortunately Paul went off to some trees on the right so we missed him on film. ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿงก

Please consider a donation so that we can continue to help these magnificent animals.

A small selection of nestlings and injured fledglings that have been brought into us over the last month. These garden birds have progressively moved from a little nestbox, where we can keep them warm, hand feed and tend to any injuries, to eventually this enclosure where they can learn to use their wings and are start to feed themselves. From here they may be released or if not quite ready they will be moved to one of our larger outdoor aviaries.
It takes us around 5 weeks to get a nestling ready for release day. It will vary slightly depending on the species but on average they are hand fed every hour for several weeks. Once they start to become more independent we encourage self feeding and eventually searching for live foods (thank you for your donations), seeds and bits of fruit that we hide in soil or bark and in little hidey holes around the enclosure in a bid to prepare them for the big wide world. They must also be able to interact with their own kind.

We are desperately trying to expand our Wildlife facilities so that we don't have to turn animals away. Please consider sponsoring a Wildlife unit.๐Ÿ™
This can be done as an individual, a business or maybe your group, club or school would like your get involved? ๐Ÿ’›โฌ‡๏ธ๐Ÿงกโฌ‡๏ธ๐Ÿ’›

Please note:This aviary was moved to this location for filming purposes and was under supervision. These birds need shelter from the elements and also from predators such a magpies.

๐Ÿ‡Sylvia and her friends are growing up fast.๐Ÿ‡ We have 8 young wild rabbits in our care at the moment that have all come to us at just a few days old. They have been hand-reared on milk and now moved onto solid foods which means they are growing more independent. Release day won't be far away. The process from arriving at the centre to leaving us will have taking just over a month and a huge amount of time and resources but we wouldn't have it any other way.

Please consider a financial donation, we cannot survive without help. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™
