CARING FOR SCOTLAND'S SICK, INJURED AND ORPHANED WILDLIFE

2nd June 2014

Last night 4 baby hedgehogs were brought to Hessilhead. Their nest had been disturbed and mum disappeared. The babies are less than a week old, and require feeding every 3 hours for several days. Today they have learnt to suck from the bottle, so feeding times now are taking a bit less time than when they didn’t know what the teat was for!.

More young birds in the hospital too. A nestful of blue tits arrived this morning, and later on 3 tiny blue tit chicks were brought from Cumbernauld. They are only a few days old. There is a young rabbit, more jackdaws, another chaffinch chick  and more common gulls have hatched. The feeding round just gets longer.
