We are incredibly grateful for donations of margarine, fish for the birds and even some food for the staff which have come in from lots of local people.
This incident was completely unexpected and came out of the blue. We were not expecting such sudden vast numbers of birds to come through our doors in need of help and we were literally running out of the margarine to clean them and fish to feed them.
It is still early days and hard to say how the birds will survive in the long-term but the margarine is proving to be a real life-saver."
