It was soon dark and by the time it got to 10pm I came to the conclusion that the RSPCA wasn’t going to show up. So I tore myself away from the pond and made my way home.
After a sleepless night I was back at the pond by 7am. The goose was still in the same spot and seemed OK but was having trouble turning its neck to tend to the feathers on its back. I was worried that it hadn’t been able to eat either.
Wondering whether the RSPCA would turn up this morning I took to twitter again to update everyone following.
I was contacted by the lovely Jenny (@who_giveahoot) who volunteered to drive all the way from the Bungay area of Suffolk to help rescue the goose. As I hadn’t heard anything from the RSPCA to update me on their intentions I took Jenny up on her offer.
Jenny had a couple of things to do first but would leave within half an hour. I told her I would meet her by the pond.
About forty five minutes later the RSPCA turned up! Great for the goose, not so great for poor Jenny who was half way through her journey. I immediately called her to give her an update. Pleased that the RSPCA had arrived Jenny decided to continue her journey spurred on by my invitation for tea and biscuits.
