RSPCA Wildlife Centre
IS UNABLE AT PRESENT TO ACCEPT WILD ANIMALS FROM MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC.....
Hit by the double whammy of Covid lockdown and Avian flu, the hospital looks like Fort Knox.
Their telephone recording says that they cannot accept wild animals from members of the public at the moment, so people should consult a vet if they find an animal in need of care.
Other queries need to be made to RSPCA head office.

EAST WINCH WILDLIFE CENTREHow it all began:-During the seal virus epidemic in 1988, the RSPCA and Greenpeace were given an old garage in Docking, Norfolk as a base to treat sick seals. It soon became clear that a permanent wildlife treatment centre was badly needed to care for many other wildlife casualties which were being brought in. Consequently, the RSPCA purchased and converted an old farm building in East Winch and the Wildlife Centre was opened in 1992.
