FIREFIGHTERS helped release a magpie, which was stuck behind a cupboard in Marlow.

One appliance and crew from High Wycombe attended a house in Bisham Road yesterday morning at 8.39am to give assistance to the RSPCA.

RSPCA spokesman, Sara Howlett, said: "When our inspector arrived at the scene the fire service was already in attendance and were in the process of freeing the trapped magpie.

"The bird was stuck in a small gap about six inches wide between a wall and a cupboard. After attempting to catch the bird using a net, a hole was cut in to the cupboard which the bird then climbed out of, successfully released and he flew away."

Can't change nature but if people used less slug pellets more birds would survive. Don't believe the 'harmless to birds and animals' label.
