Amber the Kestral

By AdamCan  
Hi there thanks for looking. I took this at the Secret World animal sanctuary who had an open day today 24th Aug 2008. This is one of there residential birds that rtaken from the nest when very young. The kids who took her only fed her on dog food so when the RSPCA found her, she was in a bad way. Unfortunately she is now too reliant on humans and is now captive, but this is very unusual for the Secret World who try to release the birds back to the wild as soon as physically possible. If you are interested in learning more you can visit Secret world online, they even have a facebook account

thanks for looking
