November Update – lofts completed

Well as I mentioned the construction of our two new lofts is now completed and I have moved ‘Brian’ our lanneret into one of them. He seemed to appreciate the effort and promptly had a bath to celebrate! He can comfortably over winter there.

All birds are currently flying well – we had a busy period down at Thornbury Castle – thankfully the weather was dry with some welcome autumn sunshine and now we are beginning to look ahead at our Christmas schedule. I am hoping to get ‘Pete’ our Kestrel flying again soon. His moult is almost complete and having him back flying again will be great – he is a great addition adding variety to our display. He is also his big personality as I have described before.

Leah our older Lanner Falcon who will be 16 after Christmas is still a wonderful flier but lacks the stamina of her younger days – so we keep her flights shorter and fly her at home and Thornbury Castle which she knows so well. A kind of semi retirement if you like!

I leave you with a picture of her….
