Cbeebies TV presenter Sarah Jane Honeywell visited East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service today in advance of WRAS's official opening and completion of Phase One of WRAS's new Casualty Care Centre at Whitesmith.
Sarah first visited some young deer rescued by WRAS on Ashdown Forest. Including "Caramel" rescue 3 weeks ago after being found concussed at Five Ash Down just north of Uckfield. Sarah was also able to meet "Button" the miracle baby deer rescued last October caught in stock fencing, who is living wild but continues to return to her home garden.
Sarah then visited WRAS's Casualty Care Centre to see how work is progressing before the official opening due to take place on 4th September 2010. Several hedgehogs were introduced to Sarah, which she had never seen close up before.
To finish her visit Sarah helped WRAS founder Trevor Weeks release a duck at Moat Pond, East Grinstead. This duck was rescued by Trevor the previous day after being found caught in line and a hook embedded in the soft tissue at the corner of the mouth. He had been treated at WRAS's Casualty Care Centre and assessed for 24 hours before being released again with Sarah's help.
