A Little bird of prey, plucked from the side of the road by a kind motorist.
We collected a very weak Kestrel from A vets in North Yorkshire. This little girl has struggled with the freezing conditions and was picked up from the side of the road.
She didn’t appear to be injured but just very thin and dehydrated, after warming her up we started with re-hydrating her. Once she had settled and looked perky, we introduced bits of food, which she readily took a few pieces.
We transferred her to Corio raptor care and rehabilitation but unfortunately her ordeal was too much and she passed away in the night.
