Every year people find baby birds that are out of their nests and feel that these little babies need rescuing.  However, that’s not always the case. Most of these birds are not orphans but fledglings that are better off being left in the wild.

Visit the RSPCA website HERE for a guide as to what you should do if you come across a baby bird and how to identify at what stage there are so you’ll know what to do.  There is also useful information on owlets and what to do if you see one out of its nest.

Please don’t try to care for young birds yourself.  These birds need specialist care and facilities if they are to survive.  To find a wildlife rehabilitator near you, visit the RSPCA website HERE
