We had a House Martin nest in the eaves on the gable wall of our house and as we’ve had a digger digging out our front garden yesterday and today, the vibrations of it must have made the nest fall down. The digger guy said a chick fell to the ground this morning (onto earth thank goodness) and brought him into us. My partner put it into a box and it seems to be pretty able bodied and not injured. As the nest has gone and I have no idea how to rear it on our own, would anyone possibly be able to rear it for us please? Or give me some advice as to what to do? If it’s not too difficult maybe we could be successful. It has some adult feathers and some downy feathers, so my guess is it was near to fledging soon anyway
We live in Fforest, near Swansea in WalesIf there is anyone available within a 30 mile radius please, you would literally be a life saver.
I hope someone can help please
