He was unable to fly so they picked him up and brought him back to Forgotten World Adventures depot. Wendy our lovely receptionist rung the Vet and they suggested that we give Carol at Bird Rescue Turangi a call.
The morepork spent 6 weeks with Carol at the rescue centre recovering from a broken wing. Carol named him Gotten (Forgotten World). It turns out that Gotten was only young, under a year old.
So it was with great excitement that on the 16th August, Adele Josephs and Michelle released the morepork Gotten back into tunnel 20 to rejoin his tunnel mate, another morepork that our team have sighted periodically.
This was a certainly an unexpected bonus for those out on the 5 Tunnel tour that day and a privilege for our team to take care of the wildlife on the line!
