Its been a stunning evening, the light on the Centre was low and long and warm and summerly, it was a joy to sit in, despite the fact that there is an eagle not on its perch, but in a damn tree next door!!! He has been sitting there since about 4.30pm and it is now coming up for 9.00pm, I have just waved yet another bit of food at him and he is not interested, so he will stay there for the night!! It means an early start, but I suspect knowing most Tawny Eagles that he will not want to be an early riser anyway!

Cool Ground, the Snowy Owl was amazing today, showing tremendous promise, I think he will be very exciting to watch, particularly if we can get him going well for the Owl Evenings. The other birds went well today as well, and my female Lanner went loose as did another of the Peregrines. Although Bay Middleton was great fun on the introduction to the dummy rabbit. He flew straight at it but then could not pluck up the courage to catch it, I suspect it will be a couple of days before he will go straight to it, but it will be fun trying!

Otherwise a good end to the day.................................................



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

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
