Been a Busy Summer

The owls have finished breeding for the year and a very successful one it proved to be. The Great Greys raised four chicks, the Mottled 5 chicks. and the Indian Scops 3 chicks. The Tenmalms were unsuccessful and the White faced and Blue Wing Kookuburras also failed. I still have a few Mottled chicks available if anyone is looking for one.
Last week saw us camped out at Woodcote Green Garden centre (Wallington), we provided a number of shows throughout the day (Monday - Friday), the children enjoyed meeting the owls and we must have had over a 1000 people pass through. It was a very enjoyable but also a very tiring week. We are waiting for some photographs to be forwarded to us and we will add them to the site.
The owls are now having a well earned rest before the events start again in September.
During the Summer I have added to the collection, and now have 4 Tawny owls so hoping to start breeding them next year, I am still looking to add other birds both to the display team as well as the breeding programme. This month also sees the start of the rebuild of a large part of the avairy complex, just waiting for another owl breeder to collect a couple of birds as I need to move the occupants around. Once this has been done it is going to be a complete knock down and rebuild. The layout will be different with a number of the avaries dedicated to the breeding birds.
Keep a lookout as the web site will be revamped over the coming months and we also plan to start selling owl related merchandise in time for Christmas.
