It had to happen, it does with all the puppies here, Sedge took a header into the pond, he was not impressed - covered in Duck weed and shivering he whined all the way back to the house!! Plus he was not pleased about being dried either. All the other dogs love being toweled down, but he does not, complaining little devil!

The birds are not that bothered by him although Hemp thinks he looks very interesting, but I am not sure her motives are pure! And Lammerlaw - the African Fish Eagle just wants to eat him, but then she pretty much wants to eat anything and anybody, so there is nothing new there.

The young lanners have been flying well in the very windy conditions and the Peregrine just loves it as does Hard Tackle - Tawny Eagle. The owls are less impressed because it does blow them around. The Long eared Owl is really coming on although its call is very noisy, very insistant and very irritating!! Can't recommend them for neighbours that is for sure!!



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