Currently In Care.

The Kingfisher has an injured wing but it's not broken, so a week of R&R and grumpyness at his rescuer is all he needs.

The three peewees are growing fast and can be transferred into the big cage to get some flappage in. THe big cage is still filthy from the magpies so I'd better clean it out on Saturday.

The little bat was bouncing off the walls of the tent last night, so I let her go.

Meet Lucky Bat.
He is a baby, furless goulds wattled bat. I picked him up today and will be trying to hand-rear him.

Here, he bites and sucks on a Biolact-soaked piece of blotting paper. Soon I'll be picking up some extra fine pipettes.
