Merlin in care

The local Vet passed this bird on for care. X-rays show no obvious injuries, but clearly has leg issues, and finds it hard to grip with its talons. Small raptors don’t usually live long in care (two ex Sparrowhawks and a Merlin here are testemont to that) but this chap is a feisty wee fighter and is taking food from tweezers. Fingers crossed and hopefully leg damage is just muscular and will heal quickly.

UPDATE: the wee fella didnt make it. RIP.
