Care Staff at East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) are asking members of the public who find poorly wild birds with ticks on them to seek urgent help in order to help save the birds lives.

“Ticks on birds can be fatal if left alone” said Trevor Weeks MBE founder of WRAS, “mammals cope much better than birds which need urgent veterinary help to both remove safely the ticks but also more importantly to get the right medication in order to treat the effects of the tick bite.” » Read more

A bird of prey gave rescuers a good workout at a sports centre in Eastbourne tonight (Friday 19th September).  The sparrowhawk flew inside the large sports hall at Eastbourne Sports Park off Cross Levels Way Eastbourne on Thursday 18th September after chasing a starling inside. Staff at the sports hall left doors open but the hawk was not leaving so they called out volunteer rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) for help. Thursday night rescuers had to wait for the evenings sports activities to finish before they could start their rescue mission which kept the rescuers busy till midnight where the mission was put on hold till the following night.

Friday night rescuers Trevor Weeks MBE, his partner Kathy Martyn, and fellow rescuers Tony Neads, Kai Ahmed and Chris Riddington attended on site at 9.30pm and set about trying to catch the bird. “Sparrowhawks don’t like flying in the dark so generally we try to turn out the lights whilst they are flying forcing them to flutter to a lower level where there can then be caught. However, these large halls can be very problematic as there are numerous beams close together meaning there are always perches close by, and working with such heights can be difficult too. The lights are often not straight forwards and can’t always be switched completely on and off or not turned off quickly enough.

This hall was no exception and we had to figure out how best to proceed” explained Trevor Weeks MBE founder of WRAS. After a number of attempts to catch the bird, the rescuers used extending poles strapped together, night visions goggles, and a spot light to catch the hawk. “On the last attempt, we managed to get the hall in complete darkness just with one small beam of light, this allowed Trevor to disturb the bird and force it to fly. It flew around slightly before amazingly landing and perching on top of the net head. So slowly Trevor lowered the net to the ground, where rescuer managed to catch the sparrowhawk. I was just about to grab hold of the bird when it attempted to fly but flew straight into one of the sports nets. Kathy and I quickly managed to gain control of the bird and the lights were then switched back on and the bird was secured” described rescuer Chris Riddington.

“Both Chris and I had punctures to our hands where the hawk dug it’s talons into our hands as we caught it” said rescuer Kathy Martyn ”we took the bird back to our Casualty Centre at Whitesmith where it was bedded down for the night, as they don’t like flying in the dark.” Rescuers took the sparrowhawk out for release Saturday morning where he was released back within his home range close to the Sports Park.

“We often get called to halls, warehouses and supermarkets to try and rescue birds caught inside and sadly we are not always successful, this was an extremely lucky bird and he certainly gave us a good work out!” said Trevor.

Volunteer rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue helped by staff from Eastbourne Borough Council had to launch an emergency swan rescue after a dead cygnet was found at Decoy Pond, Hampden Park, Eastbourne on Monday. Staff from Eastbourne Borough Council asked specialist veterinary staff from the Shepperton based Swan Sanctuary to post mortem the cygnet. Staff at the sanctuary were shocked at the cygnets condition and that he had weighed just 2.7kg almost half its expected weight due to a severe parasite burden.

The Swan Sanctuary then phoned East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) who stepped in today as an emergency to assess the rest of the family.

“We took our walk-on-scales down to the park to check the weight of the cygnets hoping that the one which had died was a runt and more susceptible to illness. Luckily mum, dad and three cygnets were on the grass, so we managed to catch two of them easily and weigh them” explained WRAS volunteer rescuer Kathy Martyn “these two were checked over back at our ambulance and discovered to be about 3.9kg and 3.2kg which is quite a bit lower than we would expect.”

WRAS founder Trevor Weeks MBE who co-ordinated rescue, contacted the Swan Sanctuary’s vet nurse Mel Beeson, to talk over the cygnets conditions, and a decision was taken to catch the three remaining cygnets and try to check one of the parents weights too.

“It was clear the cygnets were nowhere near as lively as should be expected, so we decided to go for the slow and patient approach waiting for suitable opportunities to catch them and the parents where possible. Our second capture saw another cygnet and dad caught. They were checked and the cygnet was only 3.1kg and dad was a good 12kg weight. Volunteer Rescuer Tony collected these four and took them to WRAS’s Casualty Centre at Whitesmith, whilst Kathy and I continued to catch the remaining two cygnets.” » Read more

Who said working with animals is glamorous! East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) were called out by Cootes Vets in Burgess Hill after they were delivered a rather smelly and dirty fox cub which had been trapped in a septic tank on a building site near Ardingly College, West Sussex.

Volunteer rescuer Dave Novell drove to the vets in Burgess Hill to collect the fox: “I was surprised at how much he smelled and I’m not surprised the vets didn’t want to touch him!”

The fox cub, one of this year's youngsers, was driven by ambulance to WRAS’s Casualty Care Centre at Whitesmith, East Sussex, where Assistant Manager Chris Riddington took on the job of cleaning up the poor fox.

“He looked so sheepish in his carrier, and I’m sure he didn’t like the smell any more than we did!”

Chris had to wear protective clothing whilst washing off the sewage from the septic tank.

“We used nice warm water and gently cleaned him up. Some of the clumps of sewage were difficult to get off but with a bit of soaking and the use of a comb they eventually came off” said Chris.

“This has to be the smelliest casualty I’ve had to deal with. We decided to name him Sherman as he was found in a septic tank!”

The fox was given antibiotics and drops in his eyes, and has now been bedded down on a warm towel to recover. It is hoped the fox will be released close to where he was found.

Volunteer rescuers attended a deer rescue with a difference today (11/6/14).  Trained rescuers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) were called out to a report of a deer with its antlers entangled in a child’s football goal.

The risky rescue took place at the edge of Abbotts Wood, about a 5 minute walk from Robin Post Lane, Hailsham.  Two ambulances attended on site and rescuers searched for the deer before discovering it at the edge of the wood in tall vegetation.

“As we approached the deer it dragged the netting and metal poles from the damaged frame with it and it slid into a dry ditch” said Trevor Weeks MBE from WRAS.

Trevor had to tackle the deer and pin it to the ground. The deer’s head was then covered and the netting was then cut away.

“You have a 30 minute window in which to cut these deer free of they risk having a heart attack” added Trevor.

After about 5 minutes on the deer, the netting was cut free and the metal poles and remaining netting were cleared away before Trevor jumped off the deer, allowing it to get up and run off back to the wild.

“The rescues are guaranteed to get your heart racing but it is so good to see the results of your efforts, when the deer run back off to the wild” said Kathy Martin, WRAS trustee.

Volunteer rescuers were called out this morning to a squirrel trapped inside what is supposed to be a squirrel-proof bird feeder. When rescuers arrived at the address in Vicarage Lane, Hellingly, the squirrel was frantically trying to get out, going round in circles and chewing at the plastic and wire.

As rescuers approached, the squirrel became more lively and the adrenaline gave the squirrel enough of a push to free itself and run off down the garden unharmed.

“This is a common problem, especially with juvenile squirrels at this time of year when they are not fully grown and can just about squeeze through the bars and after eating they can sometimes find it a bit harder to get out again” said Trevor Weeks MBE founder of East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service.

A tear was brought to rescuers' eyes when their hard work to save a mum and 4 baby hedgehogs was successful.

Volunteers from East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) were called out to check a female hedgehog and some baby hedgehogs found in a wooden store at the bottom of a garden in Nevil Road, Uckfield yesterday (30th May 2014). The residents were clearing various items and out from a rolled up tarpaulin fell a large hedgehog and some babies which dropped to the floor. Rescuers from WRAS attended on site and found mum huddled in the corner and some very young, lethargic and cold baby hedgehogs scattered around. The babies were on a cold bare concrete floor.

"Looking at mum's front feet we wonder if she was trapped and couldn't get out as her nails were unusually short, worn down to the quick, she had no bedding material and we think she ran out of time and had to give birth where she was" explained Trevor Weeks MBE founder of WRAS.

"When Trevor passed me the first baby I was surprised how cold he was, straight away I tucked him down my top to keep warm, the others were just as bad and all needed gently warming up" said rescuer Kathy Martyn.

The youngsters were wrapped up and taken back to Trevor's home in Uckfield where the babies were warmed up in one of Trevor's best warm winter jumpers with a pair of "Helping Hands" full of hot water. After about 15 minutes all but one of the five young started to respond and move about more, so rescuers decided to try putting the four surviving babies back with mum, to see whether she would accept them after such a traumatic evening.

"To our amazement when we checked an hour later, she had moved closer to her young and they were all tucked up underneath her as if nothing had happened. It was amazing to see as hedgehogs don't like being disturbed and are notorious at abandoning their young or even killing them when disturbed at such a young age" explained Kathy.

After a couple of hours rescuers moved mum and babies to a large hutch in a shed where they were kept with Trevor's jumper for comfort and familiarity to settle into their new home.

"It was so nice to see her nursing her young again and so pleased that they survived their fall and poor start to life" said Kathy, "we will leave her alone for 7 days and will just provide food and water and additional bedding material and check her in a week to see how they are progressing. We have all our fingers crossed for her and the survival of her young."

Hedgehogs are thought to be declining by 5% a year and the work of organisations like WRAS is important conservation and animal welfare work.

A surge in casualties is stretching a Sussex animal hospital to the limits as the busy spring and summer season begins.

Volunteers and part-time staff at East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) have been rushed off their feet since the beginning of Easter dealing with an average of 25 calls for help per day.

The dedicated Care Team and rescuers from WRAS's Casualty Centre at Whitesmith between Hailsham, Uckfield and Lewes are working long hours and through the night on occasions to help Sussex's precious wildlife.

In the past week the Care Team has been looking after scores of blackbirds, starlings, blue tits, dunnocks, pigeons, doves, ducklings. In addition, a number of baby hedgehogs were rescued at Firle after their nest was disturbed by a dog and their mum abandoned them. A gosling had to be taken in after getting lost from its parents near Hampden Park.

A leucistic starling was rescued after being caught by a cat in Uckfield and 6 great tit nestlings were brought to WRAS after their nest inside an air conditioning unit was disturbed and their parents abandoned them.

A hedgehog was picked up after being found out during daylight and using WRAS's ultrasound she was discovered to be pregnant. A young woodpecker was picked up in Battle after being found grounded.

"This is my first year organising the orphan rearing, and it's been manic. We are seeing a lot of casualties coming in after being picked up by cats, and it's heart breaking when you lose one to septicaemia caused by the bacteria from the cat's teeth and claws," said Lindsay Redfern BSc Hons, one of WRAS's Casualty Centre Managers and Orphan Rearing Team Leader.

WRAS's Care Team are working long hours on call for emergencies and dealing with the care of animals already in WRAS's Casualty Centre. "It's not uncommon for us to work our paid hours which are usually 6 hours a day and for us to work on till late at night dealing with rescue. Most days we volunteer more hours than we are paid for, but we wouldn't do it if we didn't love it so much," said Chris Riddington, WRAS's Casualty Centre Assistant Manager and rescuer.

"We love volunteering at WRAS and last week being able to help rescue the badger at Poynings and the Swan at Brighton Marina was an amazing experience, you finish at the end of the day buzzing with excitement and joy of being able to help these amazing creatures," said Andrew Loftus, WRAS Feed and Clean Shift volunteer and Rescuer.

"We get a wide range of calls and it can be very frustrating when someone calls just wanting us to 'get rid' of a wild animal or bird visiting their garden, demanding that it is brought into care when it should be left, like fledgling birds for example. We often are then told we 'don't care' as a result, when we are just advising people what to do in the best interest of the animal," said Kathy Martyn volunteer member of WRAS's Care Team and Hedgehog Co-ordinator.

"Sadly not all casualties make it despite our Care Team and vets working hard to save them. We lost a young fox cub last week after spending a week battling to support it, trying to allow the antibiotics a chance to work, as well as a hedgehog road casualty which we had on oxygen and medication. We have lost two foxes recently after they came in suffering from poisoning. You try hard not to get attached but it is so difficult and we all end up having a cry from time to time," explained Trevor Weeks MBE founder of WRAS from Uckfield.

"The best part is when you get a chance to release casualties back to the wild. Seeing all our hard work paying off and seeing a gull or hedgehog go off back to the wild is great, we get such joy from seeing their faces. They might not stop to say thank you but we know they are glad to be home and back where they belong. It does the soul good!" said Lisa Barrow, Feed and Clean Shift and rescue volunteer from Brighton.

WRAS is funded by volunteers and donations from the public and relies on this funding to keep the service running across East Sussex. The charity receives between 2-3,000 calls for help every year, and struggles to cope with the workload.

WRAS has expanded and improved its facilities again for the fourth year in a row to try and help as many people as possible and has already taken in more orphaned birds this year than it was able to last summer.

"It's really heart warming when you meet people who tell you what a great job we are doing and reach into their pockets and give a donation to help support our work. These people really lift us when we are down after losing a casualty.

I know we are not able to help everyone but we try our best to help as many as possible. I wish we could do more, but we need to ensure that the casualties we are able to take in are properly looked after and cared for working closely with are veterinary team," added Trevor, "please support our volunteers, rescuers and care team to look after our casualties by making a donation, this is a very expensive time of year for us."

A team of 5 rescuers spent 3 hours rescuing a badly injured goose from a wooded pond at Herons Ghyll just north of Uckfield, East Sussex. A local resident found the goose whilst walking in the woodland several days ago and had struggled to find anyone to help before contacting East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS).

Two veterinary ambulances from the charitiy's base at Whitesmith attended on site transporting 5 rescuers to the site. The goose was dragging a wing in the water, and clearly was unable to fly. Rescuers had to use drysuits, an inflatable boat, swan hooks, rope, a long walk-to-wards net, and long handled poles and nets to catch the Canada Goose.

"The biggest problem we had was that the water was only a few inches deep, and the pond was full of wet soggy leaf litter, and fallen branches making it difficult to move around" explained Trevor Weeks MBE founder of WRAS.

Rescuers put into place a plan to catch the goose into a net strung across the end of the pond. Rescuers Chris wearing waders and Trevor wearing a dry suit tried to encourage the goose up to the far end of the pond where waiting rescuers were ready to spring into action. The first attempt failed as Trevor struggled to get far enough out to block the gooses escape route. Rescuers then brought in an inflatable boat and Trevor paddled out the best he could, but movement was restricted due to the branches under the water. The second attempt worked better but as the goose tried to run past Trevor he reached for the goose tipping out of the boat landing head first into the water.

"Everyone was worried about me landing face down in the water, but I just couldn't help laughing! It was a bit of a struggle to get out, but once I got my legs over the hidden branches I was able to pull myself out" said Trevor.

Rescuers decided that as it was so difficult to move the boat around, they would tie rope to either side of the boat so rescuers could pull Trevor in the boat across and along the pond to help encourage the goose towards the net and rescuers.

For the third attempt the net was moved to a different location and almost worked but rescuers didn't get close enough to catch the goose at the net which it managed to escape from. The fourth attempt worked well and slowly inch by inch rescuers managed to get closer and surround the goose so as it ran towards the net it was quickly caught and secured.

"After a quite frustrating and long winded rescue, everyone ended up having a good laugh as rescuer Kathy took a step in the wrong direction and suddenly found herself waist deep in soggy leaf litter. I take my hat off to all of our rescuers as they try so hard to rescue casualties and these rescues can get very tiring and exhausting. We also have to ensure the casualty doesn't get too stressed out, so you have to space out your attempts to avoid wearing the poor creature out" said Trevor

Rescuer Kathy and Chris took the goose back the ambulance and assessed its condition whilst the other rescuers cleared up the rescue equipment.

"Back at the ambulance we were able to check the injury to the wing which was clearly old and badly infected. We decided that emergency medication was required, so pain relief was given under the instruction from one of our vets, and the goose transported back to WRAS's Casualty Centre to better assessment. The Swan Sanctuary at Shepperton have been contacted and the goose is being transferred to their sanctuary for assessment by their specialist vets. Sadly the goose will never be releasable back to the wild but hopefully a good home will be found by the Swan Sanctuary" said Rescuer Kathy.

WRAS rescuers have been worked exceptionally hard over the past couple of weeks with rescuers Trevor, Chris and Tony frequently working through the day and onto the early hours of the morning undertaking rescues. "Calls since the clocks changed and over the Easter Holidays have exploded and we have been so busy. Last years changes and expansion has helped and deal with these busy period better, but it is a struggle, but we are coping. We still need more funds to help with expansion and for covering the costs of treating all our casualties" said Trevor.

Anyone wanting to support WRAS by setting up a standing order for as little as £1 a month should contact WRAS on 01825 873003 or donate online.

An ambulance service has been inundated with calls to road casualties across East Sussex in the past month and very few of the patients have survived the horrendous injuries and wounds they have suffered. These are not human casualties however, but wildlife casualties.

East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service (WRAS) has been called out to 38 wildlife road casualties in the last 27 days and 10 in the past 24 hours! This is on top of all the other types of incidents WRAS is being asked to attend, like wildlife injured by cats and dog or birds flown into windows.

WRAS founder Trevor Weeks MBE has been working long hours along with fellow WRAS volunteers to try to deal with the workload but says "I am really worried about our team, as the volume of casualties which are in need of being put to sleep by vets or that have died on the road side is getting very depressing."

In the last 24 hours (Between 10 am Thursday 3rd April and 10 am Friday 4th April) WRAS has dealt with 10 road casualties.

After 10 am on 3rd April:
Hedgehog - Berwick - Put to sleep at vets
Hedgehog - Newhaven - Currently in care
Fox - Seaford - Put to sleep at vets
Rabbit - Eastbourne - Currently in care

Before 10am on 4th April:
Badger - Uckfield - Died at the road side
Badger - Ringmer - Died at the road side
Rabbit - Laughton - Escaped injured
Pheasant - Lewes - Died at road side
Gull - Seaford - Died at road side
Fox - Polegate - Put to sleep at vets

East Sussex Wildlife Rescue & Ambulance Service operates a 24 hours rescue service which relies on volunteers drivers which have been working round the clock recently with some volunteers and Trevor Weeks working as many 15 hours a day dealing with rescues on site and care work within the Casualty Centre at Whitesmith. "People think we are a large charity like the RSPCA but we are very small in comparison but we try to work as hard as we can and deal with as much as we can" said Trevor.

Why now?

"A lot of wildlife is moving around more as we move into the breeding season, wildlife also becomes more territorial and defensive over food sources and as a result birds are chasing each other more, young mammals start exploring further afield as they are being pushed away from their mums now that they are a year old, and more territorial fights occurs, we also find that the number of casualties also increases as the clocks change due to a change in human behaviour which the wildlife doesn't expect" explained Trevor.

How many are surviving?

55% (21) of all the road casualties had to be either taken straight to a vet and put down to end their suffering or they died on the road site. 6 casualties managed to avoid capture and escape injured, 2 have died in care, 3 have been passed to other organisations and 6 are currently in WRAS's care. "The survival rate of these casualties is much lower than 10 or 20 years ago whether this is down to the size and weight of vehicles, more lorries and vans on the roads, people driving faster at nights, I really am not sure" said Trevor.

"I really feel for both the suffering of the casualties and our volunteers, so many of these casualties just haven't stood a chance, and after a while seeing so many fatalities it really starts to effect you and I worry about some of our volunteers having to deal with these casualties as it isn't pleasant. I've hardened up over the past 28 years but you still get moments, especially when you are tired, when it reduces you to tears" said Trevor.

Despite WRAS being called out to 38 casualties in 27 days, there a hundreds more road casualties which can be found flattened on Sussex roads at the moment.

What should people do?

WRAS is urging people to take care and slow down. "Make a mental note of where you see dead road casualties and next time you pass that location slow down as often road casualties occur in very similar locations. If you do hit a casualties, primarily make sure you are safe and only stop if it is safe to do so, but please turn round and go back and check the casualty even if you just drive past slowly with your hazard lights on to see if it is still alive. If it is then please call a rescue organisation for help. If the casualty is a large animal, in the road and causing a hazard, like a deer for example, please call the police for assistance. If the casualty is small and you don't know who to contact, ring a local vet, as good caring professional vets will be happy to see casualties which are easy to handle or if more dangerous to handle like foxes, badgers and swans they will advise you who to contact" added Trevor, "whatever you do thought, please don't just keep driving and ignore it. The most common reason we hear people saying they couldn't stop is that they are worried about what their employer will say. Stopping because of a road casualty or being slightly late for work because you wanted to check a road casualty is not a sackable offence."
