(i.e. birds that are injured, trapped, abandoned or simply in places that they shouldn’t be)
Thank you for showing concern for the distressed bird.
Please note that the RSPB is a conservation charity which does not have the equipment or expertise to deal with injured or distressed birds but please do not forget that young birds that have become separated from their parents will often be fed satisfactorily by the parents if left undisturbed.
In this area, there are 3 main sources of help to assist any and all wildlife:-
- Cleethorpes Wildlife Rescue – Tel No. 07883 300966 or message on Facebook at linktr.ee/CleethorpesWildlifeRescue
- Pudz Animal Sanctuary, which is based in South Killingholme, North Lincolnshire
- from vet centres who are obligated to take wildlife in, even if this is to end suffering
If you are further afield,
- HelpWildlife.co.uk – Helping you to Help them takes you to a ‘Help Wildlife’ map which shows the location of all legitimate rescue centres.
- The telephone number for the RSPCA is 0300 1234 999 but you have to work your way through a lot of options before you actually speak to someone.
- Alternatively, there is a lot of advice at Wildlife advice | The Wildlife Trusts and the website (co.uk) provides advice on what to do if you find a sick, injured or abandoned wild bird or animal.
If injured birds and other wildlife is a persistent problem, there may be a case for contacting Humberside Police Wildlife Officers at Wildlife and Rural Crime | Humberside Police
