Owlet Update

Our barn owl chick, Floki, is unrecognisable to how he was only a few weeks ago. Can you believe this handsome chap above used to look like this odd little fluff ball below!..

He has grown well, and is now well on his way with his flying training with keeper Tom. It won't be long till he is part of our full flying team, and putting on a show with the others.

These are a couple of other pics off him growing up.

Our other owlets are all doing well too, and we have a second clutch of little owl chicks which are currently being reared by mum to become aviary owls.

Below are a couple of photos of our tawny owl chicks from a few weeks a go. They are now pretty much fully feathered with just their heads left to develop.

Thanks for looking :-)

Grass Snake

A couple of weeks a go we were able to get a rare hold of our grass snake, so I took a couple of photos. A few here to share with you.

For those not too keen on snakes, don't worry, I have some lovely photos of our owlets growing up which I will share soon.

I love colour, and it's amazing to look at animal colour closely. I have seen it a lot in many species, but look at the "green" scales of the grass snake above... greens, blues, yellows, browns... a real mix of colour in there.

Thanks for looking :-)
