Goslings rescued by street cleaners in Guildford

Published at 3:30pm 5th May 2020. (Updated at 11:53am 6th May 2020)

Two very young goslings have been rescued by members of Guildford Borough Council's street cleaning team.

In a tweet yesterday (4 May) the local authority said its staff had stepped in to help the birds.

They have been named Bonny and Clyde and have been passed on to the Wildlife Aid Foundation in Leatherhead for care.

In a statement Guildford Borough Council said:

"A Council street cleaning team were on Merrow Lane at 11.15am on Monday 4 May, and saw two goslings walking in the middle of the road, unaccompanied by a parent bird.

"Our team gently ushered them to the side of the road, away from moving traffic, and waited for 20 minutes to see if a parent bird would respond to the gosling’s cries.

"No parent appeared and the decision was taken to move the goslings to the Wildlife Aid Foundation in Leatherhead for their own safety."
