On the 19/12/18 one of our volunteers responded to a call from M&Co in Douglas - a blackbird had flown into their store and couldn’t get out. Our volunteer rescued the bird, who had a ring on. We checked her over and released her. We sent the ring number (LK10581) away to the BTO and have just found out that the bird was one of our own hand-reared babies that we had ringed on the 19/06/18! She was soft-released from our aviary at Victoria Road, Douglas on the 12/07/18. It's great to know that she’s all grown up and surviving out in the world - we just hope she stays away from shops from now on!
