The string entangled around the magpies foot is expertly cut by WIRES volunteer Julie.
Surprisingly the string entangled around the magpies foot was not too tight, no constriction damage and no injury was found.
Continuously trying to fly to free itself the magpie was exhausted and will be kept in care for a few days before being released back home at Eltham.
A fabulous team rescue.
A huge thank you to Simon who reported the rescue to WIRES.
Casey from Sentinel Tree Care for his expert tree climbing and gentle rescue of the magpie.
We would also like to thank the WIRES Sydney rescue team who are currently in our area, helping with animal rescues after many of our local volunteers were affected by the devastating floods in the Northern Rivers area.
