Born to Be Wild: Episode 4 (S2EP4 BBC Scotland Mon 9 Aug 2021)



Head Of Birds Lorraine is one of the most experienced and dedicated members of the SSPCA rescue centre staff, every year hand-rearing hundreds of baby nestlings and nursing dozens of injured birds back to health.

But this is a year like no other, and in mid-March the lives of the centre staff are turned upside down by the arrival of the Coronavirus pandemic.

Lorraine is forced to shield at home, but she isn't going to let the pandemic get in the way of her work! Two collared dove chicks she names Dave and Daisy follow her home, and it isn't long before she's also caring for orphaned goldfinches, a concussed robin and even a mute swan which crash lands in a field next to Lorraine's home, and is transported straight back to its home on Loch Leven.
