We have had such a huge amount of rain just recently, and many animals, particularly the new born ones, are struggling. If you are out walking, please keep your eyes open for anything “unusual”, many burrows are flooded out, washing babies out and leaving them vulnerable.
If you do find an animal in distress, or in a place where they would not naturally be expected to be found, please give us a call and ask for advice. This little leveret (being fed by our volunteer Steph) was found on a muck heap, in a terrible condition. We have no idea how he got there, but was certainly in need of help. After a good wash off, dry, warm up and some food he is now doing really well. Had he been left, he would certainly have died.
