Finding injured, sick or young wildlife can be extremely stressful if you are unsure of who to turn to for help.
Unfortunately, here at Feathers and Fur Falconry Centre we are not set up to help with rescues, and bringing wild birds into our collections runs a risk of cross infection. But we are always happy to be a voice on the phone if you are unsure of where to start. We WILL help with captive birds of prey however, so please do let us know if you have a bird of prey wearing equipment
So we have compiled a list of the local rescue centres, in and around the Berkshire and Buckinghamshire areas with an idea of what animals and birds they may be better suited for. Please remember – do not put yourself in any danger, call the professionals. This includes the handling of larger animals such as badger, foxes and deer.
Is it a baby bird? Fledglings are common in early summer and always seem so at risk especially with cats and predatory birds. If its is not injured, but simply unable to fly, consider not interfering. The parents will be around and will be aware of you and therefor not approaching to care for the baby.
