Tootles

Tootles had clearly been struggling since leaving the nest in the middle of a heatwave. Despite our best efforts she passed away soon after arrival.
Lucky

Lucky

Lucky had a deep, infected wound on his shoulder. He recovered well from that but it led to muscle and tendon damage in his wing which meant he couldn't fly. We passed him to our friends at East Sussex WRAS for specialist treatment but sadly the damage was permanent. We didn't believe Lucky's quality of life in captivity would have been good as he was quite highly strung so the decision was made to put him to sleep. This is never a decision we take lightly, especially after investing so much time and love into making Lucky well again, but we felt it was the kindest thing to do for him.
Harvey

Harvey

Harvey came to us looking very unwell as you can see in his picture. We think he had flown into something and suffered internal bleeding. Sadly he later passed away.
