Today the GSPCA have had two calls to help injured birds of prey.

One a Peregrine Falcon in St Martins and the other a Kestrel at the Fairy Ring.

The Kestrel has been named Oberon and has an injured wing.

He was rescued earlier today by GSPCA team member Neil Hughes who attended in the GSPCA Ambulance.

Oberon has been checked over and is under treatment in our Wildlife Unit.

The Peregrine was called in this morning and GSPCA team member Kevin Beausire headed there in the GSPCA Ambulance with the caller informing us the bird was caught in netting.
