Posted by dorsetwildlife on June 5, 2014

This weekend saw our fox cubs commence the second stage of their rehabilitation programme, when they were taken to their soft release pen.

Here they are having fun exploring their new environment.

Sam saved after a fall

Posted by dorsetwildlife on May 11, 2014

A 4th tawny owl chick has now joined our growing brood! This is Sam who is between 20 – 25 days old. Just like Callen, he had fallen from his nest and was once again found by the owners of the garden, who carefully collected him and brought him in to us. He arrived a little grumpy as he had been wandering around in the mud and was obviously cold and hungry. After a bath, he eagerly ate and is now nice and warm and settling in with us.

callan
Meet Callen, a young 15 day old tawny owl chick who arrived 2 days ago. He fell from his nest in a beech tree, but luckily he had been spotted by the lovely lady whose garden he was in. He was happily rescued and brought to us. The poor little lad was very hungry so ate a healthy meal straight away and has now settled in well.

Release day for orphanned ducklings

Posted by dorsetwildlife on May 11, 2014

Release day arrives! Who would believe in just 6 short weeks that the tiny fluffy ducklings would grow so big. After plenty of TLC, food and their own private ‘pond’, the lucky ducklings are now ready to be released back into the wild. Even though they will be missed, the joy of watching them eagerly embrace freedom is such a good feeling. Good luck little ones.

Progress for Eric & Nell

Posted by dorsetwildlife on May 11, 2014

Here’s a recent one of Eric and Nell. The two of them are doing very well and are now being “test flown”. Due to them still being so young this has to be done in a safe place. Their flights are still very short but both are doing extremely well. Once they have mastered the art, they will moved to the outside aviary until their full adult feathers are through.

This is Crumble who came to us after being hit by a car just outside Ringwood. Luckily for Crumble a caring lady saw her on the side of the road and stopped to rescue her. Apart from suffering slight concussion, she is doing well and after some recuperation will soon be off into the wild again.

Deeks & Kensi

Posted by dorsetwildlife on April 28, 2014

These 2 adorable 5 week old fox cubs came to us after 2 concerned neighbours in Parkstone found Deeks in their garden during the day. He was on his own, hungry and lonely. A couple of hours after collecting him, we received another call from the same caring neighbours to say his sister had appeared! After a good search to ensure there were no other cubs and no sign of Mum at all during this time, Kensi was brought back and reunited with her brother. Both are doing well and getting more playful each day. Many thanks to the wonderful people for their concerned call to us and the kind and much appreciated donation of the dog food.
