How can I keep cats out of my garden?
There is an injured bird in my garden and I can't go out there - what should I do?
Our general advice would be to leave it alone. If it is a seabird. the parents will be near by and will tend to it. If the parents do not come to it, you should ring the RSPCA to take it to a rescue centre until it can fly properly. This is the usual reason why it has dropped into a garden.
Call the RSPCA on 0300 1234999 for more information.
