Wulf’s Blog


Saturday 5th February 2011

We’ve progressed to the stage where we have started to get the flying birds out. They are all of them carrying their ‘spare tyres’ courtesy of the festive season; they have now commenced a diet for the ‘fuller figure’.

Mortimer was out this morning; she met her first visitors of this season. She obviously remembers her job, as she took it all in her stride.

We had a few new arrivals this week; a Spectacled Owl, an Indian Scops Owl, and ‘the Odd Couple’; a Tawny Owl by the name of ‘Rufous’, and an African Spotted Eagle Owl named ‘Zulu’. These last two are imprints, who seem to enjoy each other’s company, as this is how they were housed before arriving here at the World Owl Trust. Rufous and Zulu are at present housed in the Quarantine. Check out the photo. The Indian Scops Owl and the Odd Couple will be moving to a permanent home at Rod Angus’ Scottish Owl Centre in the near future. Check out

The keepers have nearly completed re perching all the aviaries in our collection; this means we are just about ready for the start of the new season.

We have two more Corporate Supporters joining us this week; Galemire Veterinary Hospital whose Senior Partner Ian hunter has been looking after the World Owl Trust’s veterinary needs for the past 20 years. Without whose support we couldn’t have afforded to care for our collection even half as well as we have done. The second supporter is Carolclimb Outdoor Adventures in Wasdale with whom you can go walking, climbing, ghyll scrambling, kayaking and anything else you can think of which involves outdoor pursuits. They can cater for individuals as well as school groups.

See you next week.
