Got a bird stuck up your chimney ? This is the dude to call, David Odonnell from essex and suffolk sweeps makes another delivery, this time a pigeon, that he has rescued which would have slowly perished without his expertise and specialised equipment . the patient is recovering well and we hope to release him soon 😊 ...

We had a another badger cub in last night that we didn't think would still be with us in the morning as she was so cold, thin and dehydrated . It was a pleasant surprise to be wrong when we found the next day that she had chewed through her drip line, eaten all the food left in her cage, which was trashed, and it took both tom and sue to wrestle her and get the catheter out ! She has already been microchipped and put with two others 😁 ... See MoreSee Less

Oh bless! Someone brought me a baby pigeon once that had fallen in a bucket of water. It was half dead and cold like a chicken fillet half defrosted! I told them it was unlikely to survive, but did what I could to warm it up. The next morning it was furious! Had eaten everything in sight and trashed the cage 😄 I was so pleased! Released back to its family after a week or so. I hope this little badger has the same fight in it 💜

Brilliant to find she survived the night, you all work miracles

Bless you babies and all you wonderful rescuers. Our wildlife is precious, thank you so much for caring. xxxxxxx

I had a badger in my garden the other night, the first time I have ever seen one in the wild and he (he was huge so I’m saying he) was gorgeous 💙 I’ve moved to the countryside and the amount of wildlife I now see is just beautiful

Great little fighter, hope she goes on to have a lovely long life ❤️❤️

Hope my little girl is still doing well, lovely shes got play mates 😊

Do you still need more towels? I have a big bag I could drop off

I have lots of towels and some blankets, can try and drop off or collection, near 5 bells Basildon x

I have a few towels, they would need to be collected though ( Old Corringham) as i can't drop them off.

Done and shared. 👍😊

Alan Plom - a potential recipient for all the old towels?

Hi I have some spare, do you have an address at all? And is there somewhere they can be dropped? X

I have a few bags I'll bring down early next week.

I will drop some down tomorrow xx

Hi I’m in grays and have some towels, where do I take them

Hi, I have sheets, pillowcases & duvet covers. Would these be of any use?

We thoroughly support this endeavour , all sorts of creatures also get trapped in drains😊🐸 ... See MoreSee Less

You are truly amazing!.. thank you you are a star!.. my pond is empty this year! Where have MY frogs gone😞

How are you checking the drains? Do you just lift the metal grid and put a net down? I have a drain right outside my house that I can check, I need to know the right way to do it though x

Amazing work 👏👏

Well done x

Tom nipped out for a little rescue today. A gull had got tangled in fishing line in a tree on an island . The rspca called for help, as did lots of other folk so there was plenty of support cheering him on whilst he canoed across the lake, hauled up onto the island then climbed the tree to save the bird. By this time it was also dark . ( he also went, soaking wet to a fox rescue on the way home but the fox evaded capture) luckily the gull is fine, just a bruised wing. Tom is also ok. The radio dropped in the lake not so good. Thank you prisca, phil , joe and friend 😊 ... See MoreSee Less

I once watched Tom chase a lapwing through mud full of cut reeds and god knows what. The word legend is over used but he certainly earns it in my book.

You’re an absolute hero Tom! Legend doesn’t even cover it.........if Sue changes the uniform, yours should be a Spider-Man costume. Sorry about the radio Sue!

Well done Tom, and everyone who cared about this Gull. Every life matters! 👍

Aww that’s great the gull is ok, I rang as did a few others to report it, I did pop back over the park to see how things were going and left as it was getting dark and to let you all get on with trying to rescue the little fella. I’m just so glad he is all ok. Thank you so much for rescuing him, you guys are awesome.

Awesome rescue, Tom. Shame the fox got away 😢 xx

You are an amazing charity xxx
