An appeal has been launched to try to track down the owners of a canary which has flown away.
The striking yellow bird was spotted in the back garden of a home in Claverham.
The RSPCA has taken in the bird to keep it safe. It is being housed at its charity base in Brent Knoll.
Ellie Jones, who collected the canary, said: "He's lucky he wasn't eaten by a predator, being yellow in the wild makes him stand out, he'd be such an easy target.
"Thankfully, he was found when he was and we were able to rescue him.
You may also want to watch:
"He's in a very good condition and although a little feisty, I think he was just in a bit of a flap about being lost as he's clearly an owned bird and he's very sweet.
"He's now having a hoot at RSPCA Brent Knoll until we can either find his owner or later rehome him."
