a very beautiful but extremely weak red kite was delivered by the rspca this afternoon. it seemed not be able to breath very well and after removing what it had last eaten from it's throat we could see on the x-ray debris and swelling. Tom is also unhappy with the images of its air sacs. we examined it with the endoscope ( still so grateful to Olympus for donating this kit to us ) and found lesions in its oesophagus. further tests are needed, Tom is currently hunched over his microscope again. we have administered it's medication and given the bird fluids. we are hoping it's something straightforward like tricomoniosis but doubt we will be that lucky ! Tom thinks the kite really appreciated his help as it donated a poo sample on him. ... See MoreSee Less

our patient is now standing, breathing is much improved and now it is trying to bite us . it has allowed sue to force feed and gradually began to take food from the tweezers. excellent progress ! Tom thinks there is a small fracture on it's breast bone which he believes will heal ok.

Anybody wanting to donate to help pay for the care of this beautiful bird, you can text - SEWH11 plus your amount to 70070, for example SEWH11 £5.
