advice - injured eagle

Hi,

We have an injured bird of prey, looks like a buzzard, in our garden. We found it in our lean-to and have called the vets but they can't help. It seems to have a broken/injured wing and we're not sure how best to help it. We have many predators roaming around our garden during the night and so I've propped open the garden shed door in the hope it will find it's way in.

Has anyone got any advice on how to help it/associations to contact. according to our local vet there's no type of wildlife conservation /protection service that we can call to come and take a look.

Any help appreciated,

Charlotte

Hi Charlotte,

What about the nature reserve in Izmir? If they can't help mybe they would know someone who could.

Re: advice - injured eagle

Hi,


Thanks Linda, I've had a look at their website but it doesn't say anything about rescue services, and to be honest I'm scared to call because Buzzards are so common that they'll probably laugh and say let nature take it's course.

I just wondered if anyone else has experience of this type of situation and could advise what best to do.

Hi Charlotte,

It might still be worth a call. Even if they can't help, they might know someone who can....maybe worth a phone call.

Sorry, but I can't offer any further help.

Re: advice - injured eagle

Have had sparrows and a magpie that haven't survived long due to stress (and age). Maybe you could email a Uk based birds of prey or falconry centre. They obviously cant take it off your hands but may be able to advise you what you can do to help it.

The Falconry Centre

or theres the British Falconry club
The British Falconers Club


Good luck x

Re: advice - injured eagle

V6cod,

Thank you. Will check them out.


I've just gone out to check on it again and I think it may have attacked/scared our cat, as he was cowering under the car which is very unlike him.

The sun will be setting soon and I just know I'm going to worry about it out there by itself

Re: advice - injured eagle

Charlotte - all good advice so far but try these folk. They have lots of experience in dealing with injured raptors predominantly with wing damage ;www.stiggywinkles.org.uk/ They are well respected locally and beyond - good luck !

Re: advice - injured eagle

Thanks everyone.

We eventually rang the wildlife park in Izmir, who then passed on a number for the Izmir belediye.
The Belediye said that their working day was over and that they could only come and pick it up on Monday (if it's still alive). We will try to keep an eye on it but I don't hold out much hope,
