The Kingfisher who came in from the cold

Friday 20th January – Shepperton

It’s not only swans that are treated at the Sanctuary, we also take any waterbird who needs our help. This kingfisher was found laid on the ice at Shepperton Marina and to all signs it appeared close to death. But after a couple of days in the warmth of a brooder and several feeds of fish the bird recovered and was released back into the wild.
