Guides News – February 2017

This month I want to start by touching on few things that we as humans make and not realising as a mistake.

What should you do when you see a baby bird on the ground?

It is hard to resist the urge to rescue. Often people intervene when in fact most chicks should be left alone.

Alone, helpless, small, cold, clumsy and fluffy… We see a flightless chick on the ground in our garden, at our rooms at lodges and many of us go weak at the knees. How did it get here? Where are its parents? Is it orphaned? Has it fallen from a nest? Is it injured? It is chirping; maybe it is calling for help? We are struck by an overpowering urge: I must rescue it… I must do something…
