Fledgling Rescue

The Crows are ultra active on the riverside, and this evening a couple of wood pigeon fledglings were attacked. A local dog walker alerted me to the scene, and I found one fledgling half eaten, and the other clinging to a tree stump with a head wound and half it's right wing feathers missing, the usual Crows trademark !  I have treated the head wound with anti bacterial cream, and given it some food by way of liquidised mixed bird grain, lettuce, and poultry pellets mixed into a stiff paste.

 This was the type of food I gave previous squabs that seemed to thrive on it. Hopefully it will survive the attack and be returned to the riverside in due course.
