At first, I thought this bird was just sitting on the grass sunbathing but, eventually, it became worried by my presence and attempted to retreat under a nearby shrub but it stumbled over the ground. Thinking it was unable to fly, I went over to see if there was anything I could do but it did fly into a nearby tree on the other side of a hedge. However, I am pretty certain that, landing on the branch, it immediately fell to the ground. I went to look for it but couldn't find it. I'm certain it has lost a leg or it has a broken leg.
