Most patients are the unfortunate result of man made hazards. Most orphans become displaced from the nest too early. All would perish without help…
YOU CAN MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE BY SHARING THE INFORMATION WITH OTHERS.

Generally, rehabilitation often requires medical care, X-ray, drugs and long term housing for each different species.  Fresh food and falconry trained staff will ensure that both the correct and kindest treatment is available. Recovery for release back to the wild is our primary focus.

                         What to do if you find an injured or young Owl or Bird Of Prey

These birds have a menacing look and sharp talons, BUT – If you find one and can get anywhere near it then it may need urgent help:
 

                                                                     Safety First

– Take care near the bird’s feet, they have very sharp talons and a conscious bird will be terrified. Beaks looks sharp and dangerous but can do far less harm.

-  Be calm and as quiet as you can, use a cloth or towel to drape over and gather up the bird,  the towel will create a calming darkness and help reduce further damage to wings and feathers.

- Place bird and towel into a box that can be closed or covered securely, leave it somewhere dark and quiet then call BOPH Hospital.
