Poor little thing. Unfortunately, we don’t have the facilities to support a bird/animal rescue, as we are a conservation charity. Please contact the RSPCA on 0300 123 4999 or you local vet or

Hi Lynda, they are at an age where they can be left for longer periods than before. I have just checked them now and they are all being fed by mama Perry! :)

Hi Jonathan, this is a tricky one! We are not aware of any studies to do with past birdsong in the UK. But here are some articles in the US and Canada / I hope this helps! :)

Hi Keith, it certainly sounds like this is territorial behaviour. If one of the pairs has a nest close by they will do what they can to entice the intruding birds to move out of their territory. I hope this helps :)

Hi Stephen, I'm sorry to hear that. Unfortunately goslings at this size are very vulnerable to predation from other birds and mammals. Parent geese are very protective but predation is a natural process and even though it is upsetting, we have to let it continue.

Hi Lydia, they are definitely alarm calling. It could be because of an intruder or their chicks have fledged and they have seen a predator nearby so they are ensuring their chicks stay hidden.

Hi Neil, to deter woodpeckers away from nestboxes you can install a metal plate which sits around the entrance hole to the box and prevents them from making the hole larger. I hope this helps!

Hi Sylvia, this looks like a mistle thrush with slight leucism which has caused the feathers to appear paler than usual. Leucism occurs when the cells which contain melanin are absent. I hope this helps!

Is there some greenery outside near when you suspect the nest is where the bird would be safe left? That would be the best place to leave it
