Buzzard Rescue at Bridgewater

Mrs Atlas had a big shock when a common buzzard crashed in to her office window!   It was being chased by magpies and crows when it hit the window.  The birds then tried to attack the buzzard on the ground as it attempted to escape.  It was stunned and lay still on the pavement.  

Quick witted staff put a large cardboard box over it and a blanket so that it wouldn’t panic and put a heavy musical instrument on the box to weigh it down.

We called Roy and Ann from the ‘Animals in Need’ rescue centre at Little Irchester who came out within the hour, by which time the buzzard had started to recover and they took it away to give it some food and release it back in to the wild.  It was a beautiful bird and measured about half a metre.

You can see the sequence of events below.  In assembly we talked about how the group of magpies and crows gathered together and bullied the buzzard and how kindness saved the day!
