CARING FOR SCOTLAND'S SICK, INJURED AND ORPHANED WILDLIFE

6th December 2015

I think that today is the first time we have ever had 4 roe deer road traffic casualties in one day. They came from Greenock, Houston, Beith and Maybole. No obviously broken bones, but lots of concussion. Fingers crossed.

Other patients included a carrion crow with a breathing problem, a smart male ¬†sparrowhawk with an injured wing and a little auk. The little auk was found in Dalmellington, so well off course, but perhaps not surprising after yesterday’s strong winds. It is underweight, so we must try to get weight it quickly. It needs to get back to sea asap.
