A BIRD which migrates 2,000 miles has been found in an Uxbridge pub only to face death because its mate is missing.
On Monday the Siberian Moorhen wandered into an Uxbridge pub, before a mystery man took it to a vets in Cowley.
Now Daniel Doherty, of My Vets 24/7 in Cowley Road, Uxbridge, has warned if the rare bird is not reunited with its mate soon it could perish.
He said: "It could die without it's mate, it was found in a bar on Monday night when it should be migrating, its must have been looking for its other half.
"The problem is we don't know which bar, because the man who brought it along to me didn't leave any details, but I think it must have been somebody who works there.
"I fixed up it's leg, and I've tried ringing round different pubs in Uxbridge but with no luck.
The bird is a dark grey-black in colour with a browner tinge to its upperparts and has a yellow tipped bill.
