Some news from duck rescuers.
Over Easter, a Crested Pigeon and a Wood Duck were found injured. The Crested 
Pigeon had a bad eye injury and didn't recover.
The Wood Duck, which appeared equally badly injured, with blood oozing from its 
bill, was taken to a vet then a wildlife carer.
After a week of care, it had recovered and was released at a farm near where it 
was found. For anyone finding an injured bird, this suggests it's never too 
late to try and help.
As a postscript, a duck shooter was told about the Wood Duck before its 
recovery. His comment? 'The sooner you release it, the sooner we can shoot it!'
