Newsletter - September 2018

With the team we have with the birds and in the office I really don't have to worry. The only aspect that I never was able to hand over before now, for a number of reasons was the incubation and rearing of the young. So I just can't tell you…

Our History

Surprisingly as I write whilst in South Carolina, it is grey, cold and raining, pretty similar to Gloucestershire in November really. Not that that is usual, normally the weather here is very much more bearable, particularly in November…

Newsletter - August 2018

I think the heading is a bit of an understatement for this issue. Most of you will have received my letter with the information that I am moving the National Birds of Prey Centre to the US. Some will not have received it, so I guess it might…

Newsletter - March 2018

Newsletter - February 2018

It's a while since I had the time to write a news letter for the web site. I apologise, there is nothing worse than an out of date web site. Well that is not actually true, I can think of a few things, however! We are about 2/3 of the way…
