Harford ~ Woodcock

An injured Woodcock brought into me today having been picked up at Harford, Ivybridge, the bird has a large healed callus on the shoulder of one wing and several flight feathers missing, possibly consistent with being the victim of a bird of prey strike, the bird is unable to fly but seems remarkable able and healthy despite the injury.

Around my South Brent garden, Tawny Owl calling overnight, Long tailed Tits being the first birds on the garden feeders this morning, two Stock Dove, a Green Woodpecker, several flights of Redwing passing over, Wren, Greenfinch, Pied Wagtail, several Blackbirds, Nuthatch, Coal, Great and Blue Tit all before 8am.
