SECRET World Animal Rescue Centre has been enjoying a busy start to the summer as new and unusual guests have been brought in for care.

Among the most unusual of the East Huntspill-based centre’s patients is a rare, baby blonde hedgehog, called Blondie, which would usually only be found on the island of Alderney in the Channel Islands.

Four young little owls have been using a mop as an unusual surrogate mother since they were brought into the centre.

A two-week old fallow deer called Whispa is being nurtured back to health after coming into the centre in a very weak state.

And an underfed gannet found in a field off Withy Road in East Huntspill is being fed mackerel after being blown off course.

The centre is holding an open weekend on Saturday and Sunday from 10am-4pm, with the theme being natural hunters.
