This is so interesting. Well done Dave. Good Luck to Monty and I wish him a safe and successful release. I found this site when I was looking for answers after I rescued a baby sunbird about 13 days ago. It's doing fine at the moment and I guess soon I got to release it too when the time comes. Thank you to all you nature lovers for this site.
