Orphan Blue Tit


This little chap fell out of the nest last night, I guess he was probably trying out his wings, he must have fallen at least 30 feet. We’ve been feeding him dog food on a cocktail stick and drops of water from a syringe. This morning Poppy, our collie, found another one hiding in a corner by the fence, we put him in the box with his sibling, unfortunately this one has a broken foot which when we first found him was bleeding quite a lot.

We put the box outside on the table and the parents started to come and feed the little ones, unfortunately the original chap we rescued died this evening. The one with the broken leg is still alive and trying to fly so hopefully tomorrow he may well have enough energy to fly away.
