Kestrel trapped

Recommended Posts

Yes, it was (eventually) captured by the RSPCA, took them over a day to come out the bird which was a sparrowhawk by the way was left overnight in the shop and was very distressed, happy ending though glad it escaped.

I reckon it was after the pigeons at moorfoot and it misjudged and ended up in there poor thing.

I was very disappointed in the RSPB response when I phoned them his response was 'what do you want me to do about it I'm based in Essex'

 

The RSPB are quite clear that they don't run a rescue service:

I would therefore expect then to provide details of someone locally who did.

 

It would be interesting to know if you left a bird in distress till next morning would they procecute you ?

Is it just me or are Kestrels a very rare site nowadays. I used to see them (or maybe it was the same one) all the time, even at the brook/valley at Deerlands Avenue.

Exactly...

 

As someone who was an RSPB member I just wanted a local number as as far as I could see this was fast becoming a sad situation.

 

And is was a Sparrowhawk...so glad it's free now :)
