Well Sedge did well in his first Hydrotherapy, I was worried as he is not a water dog. We took him to Hartpury to Cotswold Dog Spa and I have to say I could not fault them, they were patient and incredibly kind with him, assessed him on the floor and spent time with him and then put a jacket on him and two of them were in the pool with him. Two people with this tiny paralysed little dog. They spent some time on the ramp so he had his front feet on solid ground and then gave him three swims along the length of the pool, by the third swim he felt safer and did well. He then had a shower and shampoo and a rest before we took him home.
He had had another laser treatment a couple of days beforehand and has two more of those to come, he is going for three sessions in the pool per week for the next three weeks and we will see how he does.
Holly had very kindly taken me to Hereford Hospital for my eye appointment as it expressly said no driving, which was probably a good thing. That was all fine and I have to have my left eye operated on, I don't know when yet, but hopefully not too long a wait. We managed to get back in time that I could go with Sedge. Unfortunately Sally's camera battery went flat so I will take some photos of him in the pool next
time. She got video of him though.
We had a busy day with a Birthday Party and a Hen Party, both went well despite the weather being cold and changeable. All the falcons were out on the lawn when a hail storm hit, my little Hobby was baiting to get back into her compartment!!
Sadly the Hooded Vulture egg did not hatch, one of the big problems with all books are that they do not know the right incubation period, so I wish instead of putting 46 - 56 days which is ridiculous, they just put not known, because it sure as hell is not!!
Lyra is back on duty and doing well, Helen is flying her along with Jimmi. Discovery is in disgrace, she hit Helen on the nose on purpose, so she is going to be flown by me for a few weeks to see if she dares do it again! My Red Kite has been flying brilliantly, she loves the wind and really does use it well, she stooped yesterday and it was lovely to see.

Glad to hear that Sedge did well. We are thinking about him.

Nice to hear Lyra is back on flying duty, as she is one of my favourites. The photo of her above, is absolutely stunning. It's pin sharp.

You are going above and beyond the call of duty for Sedge. You go, girl!


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