20-06-2023 A little trip over to check on the Holt tawny owls this evening. They are doing well and their hatch will be dropped this evening letting them go free once again. The Ashwellthorpe tawny owls have also fledged and doing well. We have had 3 more tawny owlets come in as well as a little owl baby. All are doing well although 1 does have swelling and bruising to 1 wing but it is improving thankfully.
21-06-2023 Meet sooty, a little tawny owlet that found himself sadly down a chimney in Ashwellthorpe, luckily our secretary Tabi, was on hand to help the little guy and after a little check over, a feed and a bath he is as good as new and ready to head back out on his merry little way.
The little hobby is doing well and out in the avairy. He is in need of a good moult after loosing the primary feathers on his wing. Hopefully with good food and plenty of sunshine we will have him back on the wing in no time.
A lovely little male kestrel release today. This little guy came in after being clipped by a car, we gave him a few days to rest and a good feed up and today he returned to where he belongs.
The next lot of baby tawny owls have moved out into an avairy so they can start stretching their wings ready to go off to their hack avairy on Saturday 🥰
A busy few days and many miles traveled seeing birds coming in from Cambridge, castleacre, north walsham and beccles. We have also been out and about visiting new hack sites cross norfolk and Suffolk getting sites all lined up ready for next year's babies.
This lil fella came in today after his tree and nest came down yesterday, sadly his nest mate didn't make it , but this lil guy is doing well and eating nicely on his own.
The baby has moved out to the avairy today so he / she can start stretching those magnificent wings ❤
The babies are all growing and doing well, the little barn owl came in from Suffolk wildlife Trust yesterday after getting himself into a spot of bother then taking a little swim. He has eaten well and nice and dry and warm bless him
This lil guy came in yesterday, sadly he has a fracture to the leg, the good bit is that he is still very young so his bones will grow and heal without the need for surgery.
This young lady came in with wing damage, non surgical and just needed a little time and tlc and here she is enjoying being in the avairy to stretch her wings to get ready to fly free once more over the norfolk skies ❤
31-05-2023 A lovely little barn owl release this afternoon. This little lady came in yesterday afternoon after being found in the road near sudbury. She was checked over and given a comfy bed for the night and then taken back to where she was found today to be released. Thank you Kevin and your wife for helping save this young lady from the road and seeking help for her.
Do you all remember cloud and bramble ? The little barn owls that were released on to a woodland managed by Helen. Well look at them now. Both doing so well and looking amazing Thank you Helen for keeping a close eye on our feathered friends. Also a little tawny owl that was also released over the other side of the woodland. Seeing these guys all thriving and looking so well just makes my heart happy 😊
04-06-2023 A late evening rescue for this little guy. He was found wandering around and moved to a barn near by to keep him safe, sadly in doing so he lost his parents and became lost and very hungry. He has had a little feed and is now resting in the nice warm hospital.
A DAYS WORK
A busy Sunday here today, 10 pellet dissecting packs all done and ready to fulfil a lovely order, the little kestrel from outwell has moved to an off site aviary to build her wing muscles up again and the aviary block gets a deep clean and a freshen up with paint.
The baby season has started. This little tawny bundle of fluff was brought in this afternoon having been found near to death on Saturday evening. He has spent the weekend on the aga warming up and eating small mice. He will now be known as the aga baby ❤
Lil tawny floof is eating on his own, now time to step back and let him go back to being a wild untouched baby owl.
BARN OWL CHICKS
The two baby barn owls are out to stretch their wings today and will soon head out to their hack avairy ready for freedom once again.
It's been another busy week seeing many casualties coming in. Sadly several were too weak or poorly to survive, but at least they were safe and comfortable in thier final hours. Here are some of the stunning birds that have recovered and will soon head back to the norfolk skies. We had a late admission on Wednesday evening of a red kite from Carbrooke, she sadly was very thin and dehydrated, but is eating well and looking much happier and today moved to an avairy
Remember the stunning light phased buzzard that came in after being clipped by a car ? Well here she is going back yesterday where she belongs ❤
CLIPPED BY CAR
This young lady came in yesterday after sadly being clipped by a car. She has made the night, no signs of any breaks but she has a little weakness in her right leg. What a stunner she is though.
