On the move


Quite a few of our animals are being moved around at the moment, just to make way for new arrivals and setting up for photographic displays and breeding programmes etc. I will keep you up-to-date over the next few days with the where a bouts of the animals, but thought I would start of with the raptors and owls as they may be the most confusing...

OK, you ready?..... here I go....

The buzzards, "Bella" & "Blizzard" have moved off-site temporarily until their new aviary has been built. They will eventually be going opposite the other buzzard aviary and next to the otter pond on the way to the nature reserve. This of course leaves their old aviary free...


Into which we have moved our eagle owls, "Igor" & "Doina" This will give them much more space and free up their old aviary. This we are dividing into three smaller aviaries to hold the other British species of owls in, thus completing the set and having all 7 owl types in one area of the centre.


Into one will go our long-eared owl pair, "Quil" & "Embry" A second aviary will be saved for our short-eared owls, for which we are currently on a waiting list. The third will be home to our new pair of barn owls...


We will still of course keep "Milo" and "Mrs Milo" in the barn, but thought it would be nice to have all the owl types on show in our bird area. Today we welcomed 2 new barn owls to the centre, currently housed off-site until their new home has been done. Pictured above is "Cleo", I will let our new pair settle in before subjecting them to the camera lens.
