It has taken a bit of work, but we're delighted to say that our head-injury #magpie is looking much better! Originally arriving completely bald after a suspected bird attack, it has taken quite a while, but it is now more lively and, hopefully, it won't be long before freedom!
It’s competition time! Win a FREE @CanyonUK E-BIKE! iDot is proud to announce that it is joining forces with Surrey County Council! To celebrate we are offering one lucky person the chance to win a Canyon e-bike Visit idot-waf.org.uk/idot-for-cop26/ for more info. @COP26 #ClimateAction
With such a fantastic array of in-flight images submitted for our #weekendwildlifechallenge, we've tried to include as many as possible! Well done to everyone that took part - Be sure to keep an eye out for the next one, this Saturday. @VanessaMcM @inezlc @bikebunny1 #wildlife
Our neck-injury #fox is almost ready for freedom! After a month of treatment here at the centre, look how well his wounds are healing! Although he still needs a little time to recover, he is now in the final stretch and will, hopefully, be ready for freedom before we know it...
We're delighted to say that our pelvic-fracture #fox is now back in the wild! Although initially unable to stand, he has made fantastic progress and is now fully mobile. We'd like to say a huge thank you to David at @HReferrals for his help in getting this little guy fixed!
For our #WeekendWildlifeChallenge this week, our theme is FLIGHT! Species doesn't matter as long as the subject is in flight! As always, please leave your entries as a reply to this tweet and we will feature a selection on Monday! #WildlifePhotography
We seem to have the '#sparrowhawk catching' technique down to a T these days. Jacob certainly showed up the rest of the team when he caught the bird in mid flight! #wildliferescue #wildlife
This young #hedgehog ended up in quite a sticky situation after getting his belly covered in glue! Luckily there was no major damage and the hedgehog is receiving regular baths with olive oil and detergent to ensure his fur is cleaned.
A MOP found this #fox acting strangely & suspected it to be suffering from toxo, a #disease often causing the animal to appear extremely tame. It was examined and found to have sustained an impact injury. After 24hrs of R&R, it was feistier than ever & #released later that day.
Fearing that these 5 hoglets were underweight for the time of year, a MOP brought them in for a check. All were over 300g, fighting fit & fine to be released back to the wild! We urge you to phone your local #wildlife rescue before approaching any wildlife. Call us on 01372360404
This young #hedgehog arrived with badminton netting tangled around his body. Amazingly, he had managed to escape constriction injuries and Sally, our vet, was able to cut him free. Luckily, he had escaped major injury! See the full story: youtu.be/Yfqf_ASoklQ
Many of you have been waiting for this, and we're thrilled to say our last #badger cubs are now back in the wild! Although a little later than usual due to several release locations falling through, our final 7 are now in their soft release pen and will be free soon!
This #fox arrived with a nasty head tilt. An examination found he had an ear infection and a single maggot near his ear drum. Whilst the maggot was removed, his ear will take longer to sort. Luckily, he is now on a course of treatment and we hope he will feel better soon!

Found after being beaten by a group of children, this wood pigeon was rushed into the centre for help. Although bruised and shaken, it had, amazingly, escaped major injury and has been recovering here ever since. Now in an aviary, we hope it won't be too long before release!
This barn #owl arrived with us after being hit by a car. Sadly, although an examination found no fractures, she was left with a nasty ulcer to one eye. Although research has shown that owls cope well with one eye, we are trying to sort her issue non-surgically.
Surrey County Council and Wildlife Aid are working together to encourage residents to do one small thing and play their part in climate change. If everyone takes action to change their behaviours, the impact on reducing emissions in Surrey will be huge. bit.ly/iDotCOP26
Wow! We had some amazing entries to our #WeekendWildlifeChallenge this week! As always, here are a selection of your entries. Thank you to every single one of you who sent in #photos! #WildlifePhotography #Animals
Clocks changed last night in the UK, but for many animals this can be deadly. Hours that were once seen as safe are now full of traffic and we get an upsurge of calls to animals hit by cars. Please take care and slow down when driving in rural areas at night. Please R/T
Look how well our neck-wound #fox is healing! It's always amazing to see a patient recover, but this fox has proved just how determined he is to live! With his wounds closing beautifully, we hope it won't be long before this little guy can head back to freedom!

Found in an office, this female great crested newt was definitely a little lost! Although rescue is allowed, these newts are heavily protected and it is illegal to move or disturb them. Luckily for this girl, once we spoke to the relevant parties she was returned home!
We always love to see your awesome wildlife photographs, so, for this week's #weekendwildlifechallenge we're focussing on all creatures great and small! Pop your images in the comments below for a chance to feature in our social post on Monday. #wildlifephotography #photooftheday
This #fox needed our help recently after falling down a deep light well. Unfortunately, there was no escape route and the windows on ground level did not open! With access only possible from the roof, Simon and Lawrie set off to get him free. Watch at: youtu.be/XmpDNSyvCYM
We're thrilled to announce that our paw-injury #badger is now free at last! It took a little time, but his paw has healed beautifully and he is now fully mobile once more! After being set free last night, he shot off back home without a single sign of difficulty!
Caught by @RSPCA_official ARO, Chloe, this poor #fox has a nasty case of #mange and several small injuries to his rump. Luckily, he is now on treatment and is currently doing very well! Hopefully, it won't be too long before he looks much more handsome! #AnimalRescue #RSPCA
This poor fox has a nasty case of mange. Caught in a fox trap in Walton on Thames and taken for treatment at @wildlifeaid by ARO Chloe. 28

An @RSPCA_official officer arrived with this poor fox, after it was spotted with tightly wound netting around its neck. With the #netting still in place, Tim, one of the WAF vets, quickly got to work to save this poor #animals life.

This poor woodcock arrived with a fractured coracoid after flying into a window. As a fracture to such a vital bone can halt the ability to fly, it is now on a course of treatment and medication in one of our quietest pens (they are notoriously stressy #birds!) #AnimalRescue
Well done to everyone that entered a photo for last week's #weekendwildlifechallenge. Keep your eyes for peeled for the next one, this Saturday. #wildlifephotography #photooftheday #wildlife
Barbed wire strikes again! We were recently called to help @LondonFire after this fox got stuck in barbed wire. Although cut free, a small section was stuck in her side. Luckily, our rescuers were able to remove the fence and she is currently being treated for puncture wounds.
This green #woodpecker was caught by a #cat. Unfortunately, she was left with puncture injuries and bruising. WAF vet, Tim, cleaned and closed the wounds before placing the bird on antibiotics. She is still not out of the woods yet, but we are keeping everything crossed!
Accidentally caught by a pest controller, this female #hedgehog had escaped injury... but she was pregnant! Unfortunately unable to return to her original location and nest, she is now in one of our quietest pens, where everything is prepared for her imminent arrivals.
With the red #deer dominating the world of UK #wildlife at the moment, it's easy to forget that others are taking part in their annual #rut too! With that in mind, our #WeekendWildlifeChallenge for you is FALLOW DEER. As always, please your entries as a reply! #Animals
#Swans can find themselves in some pretty strange places and we were called out to rescue one from a water treatment plant. The bird seemed to have landed in the tank and did not have enough room to take flight again. #wildliferescue #sewageplant
Today’s iDot– Support Wildlife Aid’s work @wildlifeaid have teamed up with @Teemillstore to launch their brand-new collection of men’s & ladies clothing! Check out the new range at wildlifeaidshop.co.uk to raise awareness for Britain’s #wildlife & help fund WAF's vital work.

Many of you have been wondering, and we're pleased to announce that our albino #hedgehog is now back in the wild! Research has shown that #albino animals are able to cope well in the wild and we wish this little guy the best of luck! #AnimalRescue #Friday
#Halloween is just round the corner and our bat #adoption pack would make the perfect alternative to treats and/or tricks, this year! When you purchase one of these packs, you'll be helping to care for the numerous #bat species that arrive at Wildlife Aid, in need of help.
Our latest #fox arrived with a nasty case of #mange. Luckily, it can be treated if caught early enough and this one in now on a course of medication and antibiotics. Whilst recovery will take some time, this little one will be able to return to the wild once fully recovered.
Today’s iDot– Drive slower & help save wildlife @wildlifeaid treat countless animals injured in road traffic accidents (RTA). Human lives shouldn’t be the only ones we hit the brakes for.Reducing our speeds just a little helps to avoid accidents & saves lives! #wildlife #slowdown

WOW - THANK YOU! We asked and you truly delivered! These are just half of the items purchased, by you, from our #AmazonWishlist, and we couldn't be more grateful. So many of our patients will benefit from your amazing #generosity; we’d like to say a huge thank you to you all!
If you do come across an animal in need of help, PLEASE seek professional advice and do not attempt things yourself. These two young mice were fed with cow's milk for many days and are not in a good way... Although done with best intentions, it is vital to do things right.
The #fox that arrived with a fractured pelvis after being accidentally hit by a #police car has made great progress! Everything has healed beautifully and he is now able to walk, run and climb as normal. We hope it won't be long before he can head back to the wild 🦊W
Happy Monday, we hope you all had a great weekend? Well done to everyone that posted a photo for this week's #weekendwildlifechallenge. It proved just how hard hare's are to capture a photo of. Here are a few of the fantastic images submitted by our supporters. 🤩 #photoofthedayyh
How amazing! Thank you so much for your support! 🦔🦡�twitter.com/richnairn/stat…2gWi
It's now been a month since this #badger arrived, and his injured paw has made great progress! Although still requiring sutures, everything is healing well and he is already much more comfortable walking. Hopefully, it won't be long before he can return to the wild!
