Injured wildlife is often brought to Normandale. We work closely with our local vets to ensure they are treated, nursed and brought back to full recovery, before being released.
Some animals choose to stay for ever - if they choose to stay, they are welcome. We will provide food, warmth and accommodation for the rest of their lives, without imprisoning them.
Note: please do not disturb baby wildlife, deer or birds. Their mother is usually nearby. If you are concerned, please ring your local RSPCA who will advise you.
At Normandale, we have a very real love and understanding of all animals, and the animals seem to know!
A sick pigeon is kept warm, hand fed and given a drink. This process is repeated every few hours. Gradually after a couple of days, he is well enough to perch and will soon move to the aviary to progress.
