What to do if you find a baby bird in Guernsey

Submitted by GSPCA on 10:40, 11th Jun, 2013 | 0

Over the last few weeks the GSPCA have been receiving baby birds on a daily basis and the Animal Shelter would like to remind everyone what to do if  you find a young bird.

As a general rule, it is best to leave baby birds alone.

A baby bird has a greater chance of survival in the wild than it has being hand-reared by man as they learn to fend for themselves and how to forage for food by their parents.

Around 2 weeks after hatching young birds in your Bailiwick garden usually leave the nest, just before they learn how to fly.

This time of year we all venture out in the garden to cut the grass, trim the hedges and tidy the garden whilst we enjoy the spring weather.

The GSPCA is urging islanders to take care as we have already had hedgehog casualties due to garden machinery.
