What are these? I found them in my shed.
Several months ago I found a turtle beside the path churning up the mud. Is it a native species and what was it doing?
We have found a young bird. What is it and what should we do?
How should I look after it? There are no adult birds around and I cannot see a nest. Anyway I have heard that once a person handles a young bird the parents will abandon it. It is a baby so I cannot leave it alone by itself, something may attack it.
