This fabulous little Bird, a Wryneck, was brought in to us after it was found huddled on a pavement in Blackfriars Lane, London and taken to a vets in Hertfordshire.

The little bird appeared to be suffering from a head trauma and so, was given a steroid injection plus covering antibiiotic and fluids. He soon perked up but had a definite sprain to one wing which took some time to heal.

This is a small member of the Woodpecker family. It is a Red Listed Migrant bird!

Once fully able to fly again, the little bird was taken to a more suitable location and allowed to continue his journey.
