I have a young Wood Pigeon with what looks like a broken wing, it was wandering round the street. I managed to shepherd it into the garden and it is happily living in the dogs kennel. Is there anyone in the Blackpool area that can fix a broken wing?
Dont know who to contact so any advice would be welcome.
Hi BW, well done for trying to rescue this Wood Pigeon and keep it safe; if it has a broken wing it may be beyond help to get it back to the wild, however, you could try these links where they might be able to advise you better;
LINK 1 (which is a Pigeon rescue Facebook page) LINK 2 Starlight Trust Facebook page and LINK 3 Help Wildlife website - where you can enter your details, area, etc, to get help.
