This pond heron has just been rescued by our members Dipankar Barman and Tapas Das from Deshbondhu Jr Girls School at Rabindrapally, Raiganj. Papia Chakraborty of H.M.T.A. informed us that the bird had been lying ill on the roof of the school for hours and could not fly at all. The bird has developed a bacterial infection in its right wing. It is now under treatment in our office.
