We urge ‘Do not disturb’ as baby birds leave the nest.
Spring has sprung and as fledgling birds attempt to spread their wings and leave the nest members of the public are being urged to leave them be.
Depending on the age of the bird human interference could be causing more harm than good.
Many fledglings discovered by members of the public are mistakenly thought to be injured or abandoned, and subsequently moved from their natural habitat.
Young garden birds, or fledglings, usually leave the nest two weeks after hatching and during this vulnerable period of their lives they are fed on the ground by their parents. Tawny owl fledglings are even able to climb back up to their nests on their own.
