Missed the Train

13th January 2022 – Near Hampton Wick Station
This poor chap had a very nasty crash on the railway near Hampton Wick Station, Kingston. We believe he may have been clipped by a train before ending up in the ivy at the side of the track. Sally was sent out to rescue him and he was rushed back to the Sanctuary with some quite severe injuries. Sadly the vet had to amputate one of his wings as it was so badly mangled but we are now hoping he will make a recovery from the operation. Long term he will be with us in our flock as it would be difficult for him to defend himself in the wild.
