Wildlife Rescue and Ambulance Service rescuers are caring for a Seaford partridge at their centre at the moment.
He was picked up from Seaford Pet Doctors last week.
WRAS founder Trevor Weeks said, “He is unable to stand or use his legs, on examination we were a bit concerned about possible spinal damage so James at Henley House Vets in Uckfield kindly took an X-ray which ruled out any fractures.
“He has been given a long- acting steroid and is now starting to improve, but still early days.
“When we get birds in like this you can’t just place them in cage.
“They need to be supported with towels to hold them upright, and food and water placed with in reach. We also look at physiotherapy to keep the legs moving. He has been given a long-acting steroid and is now starting to improve, but still early days.”
