I went up to the Wildlife Aid centre today to enquire after Seagull and Blanche and was told that both had been put down due to the paramyxo virus.
Yesterday morning I found another pure white dead dove in the garden. It was a delicate young bird so I named it Snowdrop.
Not much I can do, but it is upsetting.
