CARING FOR SCOTLAND'S SICK, INJURED AND ORPHANED WILDLIFE

January 7th 2017

One of the buzzards that came in a couple of days ago is feeding himself. He has been wormed, so should gain weight now. The other one has an eye problem, though it can see well enough to lash out with its feet and hit the target!. Hopefully it will start eating soon.The peregrine is causing more concern. It still has a head tremor, despite treatment, and is being tube fed. Surprisingly the scaup is self feeding. it gobbles up mealworms from a bowl of water. It is getting better on its feet so we hope to take it back to Irvine soon. A flock of Scaup spend a lot of time on the boating pond at The Magnum.

Two bats were released yesterday, and a hedgehog and a robin today. The kestrel will be released tomorrow.dsc_3141-copy
