On the 2nd October a heron was admitted into our care by Vets4Pets in Corby. A member of the public had found the heron by the roadside with wire tightly bound around its’ beak disabling it from being able to eat.
V4P removed the wire and then brought the heron into us as he was very emaciated and needed some time to build his strength back up. On arrival, the heron was very weak and unable to pick up food by himself. We therefore had to force feed him for the first few days until he started to do it himself. He turned out to be a very hungry heron and scoffed a lot of food!
Today, on the 10th October, just over a week after his admission, the heron had gained enough strength to be able to fly again and so his time came to be released. Please enjoy the video of this wonderful moment by following the link below!
