When to help a baby bird
It is so lovely to start to see lots of baby birds around in our gardens at this time of year.
Most baby birds will not need any help and can nest for a few days before they fly properly.
When to help:
- If a nestling has fallen please return to the nest and leave the nest well alone, mum will usually be near by but she should not be disturbed while raising her young.
- It is possible to move a fledgling to a safer spot if needed but this should be done with care.
- If a baby bird has been attacked by a cat they should be removed immediately and taken to a wildlife hospital.
We are always happy to give advice over the phone on what would be the best option if you are unsure.
