Not quite so sunny!

I took all the dogs to Martin Flamank who is their veterinary surgeon, Sedge to have his second vaccination, Acer to have her first and the other three had something, but I am not sure what, however it was important. Acer threw up twice, once on the way there and once on the way back, I do like consistency, and then ate it, so that means she ate her breakfast three times, great recycling. Indigo was much kinder and did not throw up until he got out of the van once we were home, and I notice that has gone too - don't even ask, I am not going to! It did not stop him having toast at coffee time which we were back in time for.

I had the first demonstration off - treat, and so could catch up on emails and an article I am supposed to be writing. Did do the 1.30 demo though and that is when the rain started, so as I write I am damp, but unbowed. Then followed the photo call for Joan, see photo. And now I am back to struggling with the article and trying to work out how I can do a lecture on the status of vultures world wide in 15 minutes!! Very fast I guess.

The rain is a nuisance really as I would have liked to have flown Casper today, having gone loose for the first time yesterday, but there you go, its still be a flipping gorgeous autumn whatever the weather. Oh and Julie brought some Christmas lights that we can use outside for the owl evenings, what a flaming swizz, it says 18 metres on the box and 12 of them are cable with no lights!!



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