… and here I am busy with my birds in June 2019. Since last year we have moved house, though still have my Owl fields in Fowey, built new aviaries, tragically lost my little brother and now look after our 3 nieces too.
So when people say ‘are you busy?’ – the answer is a definite ‘YES!’
Oh, and Whisper nipped out of her aviary about a month ago and headed down the beautiful Fowey River Valley, without so much as a thank you! After 4 years of tender, loving care too!
She was a very good weight and regularly caught any rodent that made the mistake of running into her home. I think she was ready for a mate; we are putting an owl box high up in a conifer just in case she is still around.
We only moved 4 miles up the Fowey River Valley to a beautifully secluded spot. Perfect for the birds and with the plan of hosting some private bird experiences there in the
It is more sheltered and has easier access than the field – although to free fly the hawks across the open fields is a wonderful experience when possible!
Our home is now a converted cow barn, and we have renovated the old piggeries into four very smart looking aviaries. They have turned out really well; we used the original slate for most of the roof and made the most of the large old slate walls and granite troughs that were still in place. Loki loves his en-suite.
Now, if only June would dry up… 🙂
