Injured pigeon

I fully understand I may be hitting a brick wall, but I have an unwell pigeon in my back garden. He can't seem to fly and also seems he has oil over his head etc, he won't eat food I have out etc. Is there any wildlife that would help him given again he is a pigeon. I am in the borough of Merton. I'm worried about him. Very thin it seems also.
  • Hi Clare I've asked Paul on this thread for advice he's in Mitcham ww2.rspb.org.uk/.../196604.aspx

    Oh thank you! Just had to chase a fox out the garden as eyeing him up and then one of the squirrels jumped on him! All gone mad haha .... i'll keep an eye he's still about but he's been in the garden for past hour.

    Hi Clare,   I've spoken with Paul who may be able to help you as he's in the same area as you and he has asked me to pass on his mobile phone number to you so you can contact him directly.   In order to give you his phone number privately, I will "friend" you on the private message system on here .....   so can you accept the invitation and then I can then pass on Paul's phone number to you.

    Hi Clare. I've just sent you a message with my mobile number. Can you put the Pidge in a box? I can get someone to collect it if you can phone me with your details. Paul.

    Sorry, can't seem to see your message anymore. He's still there but I don't have box or anything to contain him. Will try to post a pic.
