It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that AN died at 6am Tuesday 1st August. He was found on the ground on Saturday afternoon in West Street. He appeared to have head injuries. He was cared for by Ian on the ground who did an amazing job and called us for help. After some 16 phone calls (everything complicated by Avian Bird Flu) he was taken to Arun Vets who were brilliant! After checking him over they sent him to Sompting Wildlife Rescue who were outstanding in their care and attention to detail. He had 5 star care but his injuries were serious and as a result he passed naturally at 6am.
So many people helped along this journey – I would like to thank them all. At the end of the day it’s Wildlife and accidents do happen – they are wild and need to stay wild and free forever…..!!!
RIP AN – always, to me, he will be AWOL…….!!!
