Birdsong CD helps trapped starling live and let fly
Animal protection charity the RSPCA is caring for a young starling that was rescued from behind a false kitchen wall with the help of some recorded birdsong.
It is unclear whether Simone had anything by Paul McCartney and Wings or the Byrds in her music collection.
It is thought the bird was among a number nesting in Simone’s loft before becoming trapped. It is being cared for at the RSPCA’s East Winch Wildlife Centre and will be released once it has made a full recovery.
Alison Charles, manager of the centre, said the family went “above and beyond what many people would do to make sure that their feathered guest got the best chance”.
Simone said: “It was worth the damage to the cupboard and wall, just to know that he’s all right and is going to recover.”
