Our Kestrel swapped Spain for rain!


A full-grown female kestrel arrived at The Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital bedraggled, exhausted and emaciated just before Christmas after being brought in by a member of the public who had been walking his dog.

It was only a few days later, after the bird had recovered a little and was fit enough to handle, that hospital founder Angela Downham noticed she had been ringed for identification.

“When we checked her we found she had been ringed in Spain”!

Appeal for running water

Appeal for £11,000 to supply running water

We have been here for nearly four years and have no running water on-site.

Wherever possible, the hospital has been using rain water collected in a well to top up the site’s three ponds, which each contain more than 50 gallons.

Angela said: “This helps when it rains, but when we had a dry spell last summer, we were in real difficulties.

“The ponds are needed for the aquatic birds – ducks, geese and swans – and have to be kept clean.

Food Appeal

We are in desperate need of tinned dog food – particularly the loaf-type food such as Pedigree loaf or Butchers Tripe loaf.

We have in excess of 60 hedgehogs at Leicestershire Wildlife Hospital (LWH) who will be with us now all through winter, into the spring. Each hog has 1/3 of a tin of dog food (Pedigree loaf or Butchers Loaf) along with Spikes dried food. This means we are getting through at least 120 tins of dog food a week for the hedgehogs alone!
