December Update


Hi all. Just a quickie to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a very happy new year. Hopefully it will be a good one. 

Centre wise we are still doing very well, and have a couple of new projects lined up for next year. I'm sure we will bring you news of that as it happens.

Blog wise, you may have noticed the reduce number of posts. This is due to time with the strange year we have had, but also due to most of our engagement coming through our social media channels now. I guess it is much easier to pick up and view, and already there if you have subscribed to it rather than having to go look. With this in mind the blog may very well be used less and only for bigger news, with the social media run by the office being the main source of updates. All linked on this page somewhere. 

Take care everyone, maybe see some of you here next year.

November Update


We have had a new arrival over the past month. Meet "Mortimer" the fox. Morty arrived here a couple of weeks a go now and is settling in very well.

Having been rescued as a cub, he was reared with all intentions of him going back to the wild, but despite being with other foxes Morty had other ideas and became to friendly for the wild life. That's when we were asked if we might be able to offer him a home here. 

Having sadly lost "Ellis" to old age a couple of months a go, we of course said yes. After a careful introduction, Morty is now living in our second fox enclosure along with Basil. They kind of tolerated each other for the first few nights, but are now best of buds and often seen running around and playing together. 

Morty really is a friendly little fox. Think of our "Flo" but a male version!.. He will happily come and greet you at the fence line when you come to visit, and hopefully Basil will be able to teach him how to be a bit more of a fox.

October Update


We have just come to the end of a very busy October half term, and now with the clocks turned back it really feels as if Winter is on it's way. 

This past month has seen our deer rutting. A lot of roaring and posturing, but not too much actual clashing of antlers this year... but from the little there was it seems that Albus Dumbledeer is once again our master stag. 

He will likely mate with our hinds over the coming weeks, and then we can expect some calves next year in the lead up to summer.
