The recent cold weather has challenged many wild animals and earlier this week an egret was rescued after being found exhausted at Fauxquets Valley.

The bird was named 'Frosty' due to all of the cold weather we have had recently and thankfully after a few days of care was strong enough to be released back to the wild yesterday.

On Thursday last week the GSPCA were called out to rescue a Little Egret in St Sampsons.

Porridge as the pretty white bird is called is believed to be a young bird that could not fly.  He was found in the grounds of the prison and is recuperating at the Shelter.

Over the weekend we tried a release but Porridge decided he wasn't quite fit enough to go.
