The bird, believed to be a domestic Japanese quail, was discovered in a garden at School Lane in Sprowston.

The RSPCA was contacted by a member of the public who found the bird and put it in a box.

The charity's animal collection officer (ACO) Paige Burnham said: 'Thankfully the bird is in an okay condition and seems fairly healthy, and is now being looked after by RSPCA Norwich branch until an owner can be found.'

The quail does not have a ring and posters have gone up in the local area.
