We have found an injured bird in the garden. It is very small, possibly a baby. We think its wing and leg might be injured.
It was right in the middle of a concrete yard... We watched and when we were sure it wasn't going to be 'taken in' by its mother we moved it to a shoe box with a side missing, lined with a towel. We have given it some water and seeds and we have put the box in the shade... It's now in the shed because we get a lot of cats here overnight.
I know it's likely to die whatever we do, but I want it to be as comfortable and not scared as possible in the mean time, and have the best (slim) chance of recovery. I read that keeping it hydrated is good and keeping it in the dark can reduce stress.
Is this the best thing to do? Should we bring it out each day or leave it in the shed all the time? Is there anything better we should be doing?

Take it to a vets surgery, if you shove it into a box in the shed, it will almost certainly die.
