Wild Goose Chase Ends !

Finally managed to catch the Injured Greylag Goose this evening. Using the biggest net I have with extendible shaft, a lot of gentle persuasion and guessing the right way it would go, I managed to get the net over it before it could take flight. The leg is broken but already starting to mend wrongly. I started initial treatment with a dose of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory pain relief.  I will take it to the vet tomorrow to see what can be done to save it. It is one tough bird and so far has managed to survive in spite of painful broken leg.

Meanwhile it will spend the night in the aviary with all mod cons.
