The bird of prey is more likely to be seen in Guernsey with regular sighting in the air at the GSPCA in St Andrews and around the larger island.

The buzzard who was unable to fly and extremely thin has been named Arnold and is making a steady recovery and is now out in one of our rehabilitation aviaries at the GSPCA.

Earlier this week an injured Alderney buzzard took an Aurigny flight to Guernsey.

The injured bird of prey which was recently taken in by Alderney Animal Welfare Society and on Wednesday 'Buzz Aldridge' as the bird has been named was transported by plane to Guernsey Airport and then on to the GSPCA where we have the facilities to care and rehabilitate a variety of wildlife.

The bird is very weak and struggling to fly so will likely need time to rehabilitate.

We are pleased to announce that Jimmy who was rescued last week after being shot by an airgun pellet has been rehabilitated and is now back in the wild.

If it hadn't been for the kind individuals that found Jimmy the Buzzard who has been sexed as female then she would of surely died.

Only days ago Jimmy was released close to where she was found. On route she was very keen to get back to the wild and quickly made off as soon as she had the chance.
