The GSPCA have been extremely busy in recent weeks with huge numbers of baby birds needing hand rearing that have been found or rescued.

Baby birds are always where possible best left in the wild to be rehabilitated by their parents.

Nicolle Morgan GSPCA Animal Care Assistant said “Very recently we have received a few birds nests full of baby birds varying from pinkies as in newly hatched to fledglings (almost fully feathered), mainly due to disruption from gardening activities.”

Today the GSPCA was called out to a seabird tangled in netting.

GSPCA staff member Beckie Bailey when she arrived at Petit Bot rescued the guillemot in a life threating situation as it was that badly tangled it wouldn’t have survived if it hadn’t been for the kind person discovering the bird and calling us out.

Beckie quickly transported it back to the GSPCA Animal Shelter where we are carrying out our essential work helping hundreds of animals.

When back at the Shelter the bird was freed from the green netting and is recovering well at the GSPCA.
