Rescuers rushed to the aid of a young starling stuck in the bottom of a fat ball bird feeder in a garden in Uckfield (18th June 2014). Volunteers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS), attended to the bird found in a rear garden on New Town, Uckfield.
A local animal charity is urging people to check their fat ball feeders after a starling was found trapped inside a feeder in Langney, Eastbourne on Tuesday 25th June. The starling became trapped inside the feeder after recent strong winds caused the lid to break off allowing the starling to get inside. The juvenile starling was rescued by Trevor Weeks MBE of East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) who came to the bird's aid.
Rescuers rushed to the aid of a young starling stuck in the bottom of a fat ball bird feeder in a garden in Eastbourne today (30th May 2012). Volunteers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service (WRAS), attended on site at Priory Road, Eastbourne and used wire cutters to free the young starling from the encasing wire.
The winter is supposed to be the quietest time of year for WRAS, but yesterday volunteer rescuers were rushed off their feet with calls to over 21 casualties. Normally the January call-out rate is averages about 5 a day. "This has been an amazingly busy day" said Trevor Weeks " it reminds me of the Boomtown Rats’ song "I Don’t like Mondays"! I hope that the rest of the week does not stay as busy."
