Today the GSPCA were called to the car park next to Guernsey Airport for a very unusual stray.

We were called about a possible toad and on arrival GSPCA team member was faced with a very different animal.

Neil Hughes GSPCA team member said “Just after 11am we were called out to Guernsey Airport.”

“The call was to go and help a poorly toad but when I got there it wasn’t a toad at all but a very black water dragon.”

“The lizard is now back at the GSPCA in one of our vivarium’s.”

On a very wet stormy Monday night on the 30th September the GSPCA were called out to Guernsey Airport after a barn owl had been hit by the wing of a landing plane and spotted by a passenger.

Sarah Langlois the GSPCA Night Warden on that evening went out to rescue the very poorly bird and bring it in to the night staff member Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager.

Both Sarah and the poorly barn owl were soaked and the bird was checked over, treated and placed into an intensive care unit.
