Lucy, one of our old vet nurses, had been caring for a Cuckoo at the centre for a month. When it came time for the bird to be released, Lucy realised it had missed its migration window to fly south, and it was too late to release it in the UK…

In just 24 hours, our soot-covered tawny #owl has made an amazing recovery!

After a clean-up and feed, it is already much brighter and has now been moved into one of our aviaries to stretch its wings.

With a response this good, it should be back in the wild in no time!

This tawny #owl managed to fall down a chimney and arrived with us covered in soot!

After an inspection and a clean up, the owl was moved into one of our pens to recover. Whilst still weak, it is already getting a little more feisty and we hope it will make a full recovery!

This #mouse arrived after being caught by a #cat. Although still bright, she had lost the tip of her tail.

Luckily, the damage was minor and, after the wound was cleaned, she was placed on a course of medication.

After a week, she had healed well and was returned to the wild!

This #fox arrived covered in #mange with a small pressure wound on the base of her tail.

With a special hydrocolloid dressing sutured over her wound, she was placed on a course of treatment. Although she has a long road ahead, we hope she will be able to make a full recovery :)

Lawrie and Jacob were recently called out to investigate a mysterious flapping sound coming from the roof of someone's home. Concerned that a bird was trapped, the pair formed a plan of action to get it free. But what did they find?!...

This #pigeon arrived recently with an injured wing. Sadly, an x-ray confirmed a fracture.

With the wing secured, the bird was moved into our ICU and, now, is looking much better!

With the bone healing well, it will soon be heading to one of our aviaries for some physio.

We're delighted to say that our recent male #mallard (the one who had his foot stepped on by a #horse) is now back in the wild.

Hopefully, he won't be getting himself into that very strange situation again!

We have some great news about our orphaned #mice!

Arriving with their eyes closed, they were soon transferred into the care of one of our rodent carers and now look much more grown up!

With their eyes open and successfully weaned, they should be released back to the wild soon!

We have seen a surge in hedgehogs birthing a second litter of young hoglets late in to the year - Many are too small to survive winter hibernation. The struggling hoglets are brought in to us at WAF. But we need your help to feed them all!
