A nestling gull found alone in a Cardiff garden has been returned to their rooftop nest, in a heart-warming rescue.
RSPCA Cymru worked with South Wales Fire & Rescue to complete the rescue, after the gull was spotted in a front garden in the Cyncoed area of the city.
The charity attended to find the bird with no injuries, and its parent birds, nest and siblings on the roof of a Dan-Y-Coed property.
An RSPCA officer enlisted the support of South Wales Fire & Rescue Service, who had the equipment to access the rooftop, and returned the gull to the rest of the nest.
The nestling was returned to the rooftop of the property on 24 June.
RSPCA is also guiding members of the public to advice on what to do in different circumstances when a baby bird has been found.
Selina Chan, RSPCA inspector, said: “The gull was found with no injuries, and fortunately could be safely returned to the parent birds and the rest of the nest.
“Collaborative working is so important in protecting animal welfare, and it was fantastic to be able to work with South Wales Fire & Rescue Service to help this stranded nestling gull. We’re very grateful for their support, and it was nice to deliver a happy ending.”
