What to do if you find a baby bird out of the nest

Great advice from Wildlife Aid…..

“As the weather gets warmer we will inevitably spend more time outside, and so it’s likely that, at some point, you’ll witness some of the hazards faced by our wildlife at this time of year! Baby birds are very common casualties, more often than not picked up by cats who are poised to pounce as the youngsters start fledging! So you would naturally be tempted to pick up a baby bird that you have found on the floor, but this isn’t always the best course of action…

Follow our chart (click to enlarge) to see what steps to take when you’ve found a baby bird….”

    WESTFIELD WILDLIFE has been created for Westfield residents and visitors to submit news and photos of any wildlife observed in the Parish. We also aim to post our own sightings and topical wildlife news as often as time allows.

    WESTFIELD PARISH lies just to the north of the coastal town of HASTINGS in E. Sussex (south east UK), and a MAP of the area covered by the Parish is here http://www.westfieldvillage.co.uk/maps

    To REPORT A SIGHTING, with or without photo, click on the tab 'Post your sighting' just below the Westfield Wildlife banner to see how.

    To COMMENT on an existing posting, or to read others' comments, just click on 'LEAVE A COMMENT' or 'COMMENT(S)' below that post. Clicking on a post title will also reveal the comments box below the text, as well as any existing comments.

    To return to the latest postings at any time, just click on the Westfield Wildlife banner at the top of the page. And remember - nearly all PHOTOS can be clicked on to enlarge.
