The wildlife charity, RSPB is advising people that they must not interfere with young birds that are seen looking helpless, abandoned, hungry and unsafe at this time of year.

Many people call the animal charity's phonelines desperate for advise on how to help these chicks that they might see in their gardens, on the grass, thinking they have been abandoned but when in reality the mother is close by.

Most of the time the RSPB have to let the natural world do its own thing. The baby birds might look vulnerable so people try to do the best they can to rescue them and take to somewhere safe, but this can be against what is the best for the animals - you may in fact be interfering with how nature itself has planned things to pan out.
