Naga took to Instagram to ask fans for help

Her followers had plenty of advice for the TV host. "If we found any birds that had been caught by a cat we'd put it in a shoebox with warm bedding and a lid and let it de-stress in the dark and quiet," one revealed. "They'd often be fine and fly away after a rest."

A second shared: "Looks like a young female blackbird. Possibly a cat has had her. I would leave her in a quiet place and comfortable as they can have a bit of shock. She should be OK in about 24 hours but if not, try your local wildlife sanctuary/rspb."

"It is stressed," advised a third. "Cover the box with a light cloth for a period of time to allow the bird to calm down. After a while when you lift the cloth it will hopefully fly away!"
