News from Margaret:
I received a call from a member of staff at the Makrialos Municipality saying they had found an injured bird so I went over to collect it. The initial examination did not reveal any injuries but after a few days I noticed that it did not stand properly. It was taken to the vet where it was X rayed and found to have a broken pelvis and possible broken upper leg. I considered having it euthanased, but decided to give it a chance as generally it was doing well and in any case the breaks would be healing. It is now feeding well and at the moment is in a large cage where it can move around easily. Within the next week I shall be putting it into the aviary where it can start to fly and when I am satisfied it has recovered fully I will take it back to Makrialos where it will be released.
