Production staff at Shafton successfully rescued a pigeon who found itself lost underneath the new T&I line. The lucky pigeon was carefully placed in a cardboard box and the team contacted the RSPCA. The charity were fantastic and agreed to pick it up, in the meantime it found its home in the maintenance workshop.
The RSPCA checked the pigeon and said it had a form of Ornithosis which is why it had feathers stuck to its eyes. It seemed a strong pigeon, despite being a bit thin and suffering with the infection, but as it is treatable Corimpex the pigeon will hopefully make a full recovery (named after the machine it was found under).
Following this, staff decided to raise money for the RSPCA by baking some treats. Thanks to the team to at Shafton they raised a fantastic £105 for the charity!
