I am not certain about where Scottish law and English Law diverge, but catching and helping wounded wild birds is permissible under the Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981.

how could they arrest you for only trying to help:confused: its a shame you have to go thru such channels like this when there are far worse crimes going on out in the world that one must worry about these days :(
