A huge thank you to Peter Norrey who has donated a very generous £2,500! This is a great help, especially this time of year with the 200 plus resident hedgehogs and other wildlife we are currently to caring for!

These little rabbits were accidentally dug up and although given time for mum to return....she didn't come back sadly. So they will be hand reared until they are big enough for release ...

Little Dazzle is settling in well, she is very defensive which is good....but not for my arms, although covered, still bruise from little nips when I get caught 'off guard'! ...

A baby Moorhen chick was taken off of some children who were playing with it....These chicks are incredibly difficult to hand rear, they call constantly for their mother and don't do well on their own.....If you find one on its own the parent bird won't be far away they are excellent mothers ...

The fledgling season is upon us. We have taken in a number of blackbird fledglings sadly these were all catted so their chance of survival is greatly reduced.
We are always amazed at how many people don't realise that most birds don't fly from the nest, they fledge the nest and spend time on the ground where they are support fed by the parents until their feathers grow and then they can fly which can take up to a week. This is when they are at their most vulnerable. if you do own a cat please be aware there may be young birds in the garden, keep your cat in by day if possible and let him out at night to give the birds a chance.......remember this process is only temporary ....please call the mobile number to discuss anything that may be of concern to you

Fox cubs continue to arrive at our door 4 came from Dorset found at the entrance to a den, it is very likely something happened to the vixen for them to crawl to the surface, they are all quite weak, so we will do our best for them.....
Then another came in from near Andover, she is not well and I can only think she may have had some sort of trauma, we will monitor her closely......All the other fox cubs are coming along well. The little pile of 4 have just started to taste solid food so on our way to weaning.
This brings our numbers up to 15.....
We would be most grateful for any donations of puppy or kitten wet food, puppy pads would be very useful ......thank you...
