How time flies in the summer – especially with my owls, a hawk and a site to complete before my first ever field event on August 13th – that’s less than 2 weeks!!!
The birds are all moulting like crazy – it seems like I have more of their feathers than they do 🙂
Peanut lost his last tail feathers last week and looked like a kid with gappy teeth! He has been busy helping me with my summer sessions at Trenython Hotel and Fowey Hall as well and it seems it is all very tiring for a little owl…
Peanut still loves his cuddles, especially when we tickle him behind his ears – at least I think that is where they are!
Chaya, my Harris hawk, has been soaking up the sun at every opportunity.
She is also moulting like crazy so I am giving her a rest and feeding her up – she has been a very happy, if a little fat, hawk and today I saw her new tail feathers appearing – much nicer than the one I found in her aviary the other day…she had definitely worn that one out!
Time to go and cut the grass…again…..and I can see the sun 🙂
