During the recent hot spell, 2 seagull chicks fell from next door’s roof. After a couple of days of being dive bombed by the parents I went to investigate. Unfortunately one of the chicks hadn’t survived, but one had. It did however appear to have a damaged wing.
On calling the RSPCA I was advised to try and catch the chick and place in a box for collection, within 24 hours. Not easy, with the constant dive bombing, with claws out, but I managed it, with the help of my partner and a golf umbrella.
The RSPCA duly collected the chick the following morning and after a couple of days the mother eventually went away. As a Torbay resident, not a great fan of seagulls, but it’s hard to leave a young helpless chick to suffer and possibly be taken by a cat or other animal.
Meanwhile if you would like a quote or some advice on Blinds give me a ring or fill out the form on this page for a call back.
