An injured bird of prey has been released back into the wild after police worked with a bird sanctuary and local falconer to nurse it back to health.

The Peregrine Falcon was found with injuries to its wing by a walker in a field near to a local shoot in Salwick, Preston in January.

It was recovered and taken to local falconer Ray Balch who housed the bird and took it to a veterinary surgery. It was x-rayed and found to have a broken wing caused by shot pellets.

Working alongside Lancashire Constabulary’s wildlife crime officer and Turbary Woods Bird Sanctuary, the bird was nursed back to health.

Just after 1pm on Wednesday 20 February, after a health check from the vet, the Peregrine Falcon was taken back to the location where it was found and released back into the wild.
