6-page Owl Feature in  Country Walking magazine

I'm very pleased to say that October 2020's edition of Country Walking magazine has a wonderful  6-page feature on owls featuring me as the 'expert'.

 

Journalist Matt Swain has created a wonderful write up and facts on British owls after coming out with me to a woodland in South Gloucestershire at the end of 2019, where I talked at length about owls and then called in a wild tawny owl which flew in and sat on a branch right above our heads!

Sad News - Jaz is dead

It is with great sadness that I have to announce that my educational owl and wonderful workmate Jaz has been killed after a fox broke into her aviary just minutes before she would have gone to her nightly safe area of her accommodation.

Jaz has been with me since 2005 as a licensed rescue chick and has been my companion on hundreds of visits to schools and clubs as well as appearing on TV, in film and in the press. 

She was taken from nature by humans as a chick and nature has now reclaimed her. RIP Jaz xxxx
