The question below was  sent on the 10th November, but I did not receive it until recently.  I replied, but haven’t heard back.  I could not help them with advice but I think it is wonderful that they took time to try to help this little bird


My son is skippering a round the world yacht in a race. They are in the Southern Ocean and have a stowaway swallow that is too weak to fly on board. Any advice at all as to how they could look after it would be very welcome. NB They will have to do it with whatever they have on board, and take it to the nearest rescue centre is not an option as they are >3000 nautical miles from their destination in Australia.
