Earlier this month an injured and poorly buzzard was recued in Herm.

The bird of prey is more likely to be seen in Guernsey with regular sighting in the air at the GSPCA in St Andrews and around the larger island.

The buzzard who was unable to fly and extremely thin has been named Arnold and is making a steady recovery and is now out in one of our rehabilitation aviaries at the GSPCA.

Yvonne Chauvel Senior Animal Care Assistant said “Arnold the buzzard who was rescued in Hern on the 8th September is making a steady recovery and after being under intensive care was moved into one of our rehab aviaries earlier this week.”

“Arnold was very poorly when he first arrived at the GSPCA and we think it will be some time before he is ready for the wild but we are doing all we can to get him fit and ready for the wild.”

Steve Byrne GSPCA Manager said “We have seen a huge increase in the numbers of birds of prey that are found sick or injured over the last two years with more come into our care in the last 18 months than we had seen in the previous few years.”

“With all wild animals it is our aim to get them back to the wild and ideally where they were found as soon as they are fit and ready.”

“There are many ways to support birds like Arnold from donating to becoming an Angel Pen Pal Sponsor which is a way you can donate each month to the animals in our care.”

“As soon as Arnold is ready to be released we will of course let everyone know.”
