On behalf of Marjorie who sent in an email:-

Small, robin size slightly smaller. Speckled brown back. grey breast. I believe it is a dunnock. However, I have a problem. I removed this bird from the jaws of a cat today. It has taken water from a dropper but no food, it is standing up and seems fairly perky. After it had rested and had stood up, I tried it on a flight but it didn't get far. It seems to have lost many of the flight feathers from one wing - I guess it is possible the wing is broken but everything else seems okay. 

What are the chances of this bird growing more wing feathers / flying again / surviving. If it does, what shall I feed it?
