Hummmmmm tough few days, the x&&****xz Eagle is still out, day three and we are all tired of scrambling through barbed wire, nettles and other crap to keep up with him, I won't tell you what his name is at the moment, it is most definately unrepeatable, I hope we get him back soon as he is costing a lot in man hours. He was in a perfect place to call down early this morning, but about seven horses came careering up and off he went again. He should extremely hungry by now, but there is little sign of it I have to say.

Arabis is still not well and it is very stressful seeing her feeling bad, we have changed the treatment and I hope that will make her feel better as I could do with being less stressed about her.

Have Gatsombe Horse Trials tomorrow and Sunday, which is great, its a lovely site and I hope that the birds go well. Hard Tackle - the older Tawny Eagle did a wonderful flight today, up at 1500 feet or more and a superb stoop back in, I hope the audience appreciated what they saw, it was stunning.

Other than that a lovely day weather wise, just a lot of stress with missing eagle and sick dog. I am sure things will ease up soon



I have to say that keeping a weblog can at times become compulsive and at other times a chore. Sometimes I am berrated for not keeping it up and sometimes I get wonderful comments from people who follow the news of the Centre.

It is fun to share the daily goings on here, some good and some bad, some funny and some sad, but all a part of our daily lives.
And as I said before its a pretty cool to be here and it is a great place to visit, you should try coming and watching the birds and meeting the staff and of course the dogs.

An interesting video on Lead

An interesting video on Lead

I find it staggering that people who want to hunt don't see the value in changing their ammunition from lead to a safer product. We have stopped using lead in petrol, in paint, in our water pipes, but they still want to use lead - ah well, apparently eating it not only kills birds but leads to reduced intelligence in humans......................

NO ONE is asking you to stop legal and genuine hunting, they are just asking you to change your ammunition!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
