Came home today to discover a baby Swift in a box in my back garden. To cut a short story shorter, my partner, myself, our daughter and her friend from next door took it to the South Essex Wildlife Hospital in Orsett to have it checked out. All seemed well, and the lady running SEWH took the bird in to feed it for a day or so then release it into the wild.
It was about the 30th bird they'd taken in that day, so no big deal to her - but I think what they are doing is pretty special. Good on them. Drove back past a stream of about 100 taxis covered in Balloons. Good on them too.
