A male rhea bird that went missing from a field in St John in Jersey three weeks ago has been found.

But the bird's owner, Peter Quimby, said the bird has got a slight limp as he fell off a cliff when they were trying to catch him.

Mr Quimby said: "I'm very happy, it is coming up to the breeding season, I was missing a male and I'm glad he is back."

The birds come from South America and look a little like Ostriches.

Mr Quimby also has a female bird and two chicks.
