Get home from Buxton event, sit down 4 a cuppa around 7.30 phone rings...
"is this the owl sanctuary?" "Yes it is how can I help you?" "My daughter has an owl trapped in her house"
"Text me the address, we're on our way...Rob we've got a code brown, trapped owl!!"
Race down there and find the beauty below had found herself trapped and had settled herself on a picture on the shelf.
We had her gender confirmed as later we received a message that she had prematurely laid one of her eggs, shell too soft for any hope sadly.
However, no broken bones, eyes clear, feathers plush and shiny, no sign of mites, beak clean so no sign of illness. Empty belly but keel not sharp so also not malnourished. Just simply fell down the chimney.
We take her to back garden with the homeowner, I open my arms and she swoops low then soars into the dying evening and we notice a rainbow that she flies towards...breathtaking and exhilarating.
Fly high and free little one, hope you've got more babies cooking...stay in the trees, chimneys are NOT suitable roosts lol.
All local followers, should you find yourself in this predicament please call us immediately, close the room the casualty is in and stay out until we arrive.
Please pm for our number.
If we can't be reached and non locals, call your local vet who will direct you to your nearest sanctuary. Do not call rspca or rspb, they cannot help with birds of prey.
All our work is totally voluntary, we never ask for donations for wild rescue. If you would like to help towards our work please donate via friends & family to email@example.com
