Not a Good Week for our Wildlife.

   

I thought I would share the very bad news we had today about the Eagle Owls.  You will maybe remember a few week ago there was an item on the news telling about the two Eagle Owls that were living in Yorkshire. They are not native of Great Britain but somehow we had acquired a pair of these beautiful owls.  They have been living in Yorkshire for about the last four years but where was not general knowledge that was until in was on the news.  Today we have been told that one of the owls has been found dead. It had been shot. As you can imagine we are very upset at this terrible news and I just wanted to say something on the subject to let you know what goes on to defenceless birds.  We don't know if the perpetrator has been caught but we can but hope.  Love,  Joan

  1. Hello Joan, that is appalling!  How on earth anyone can do anything so low is beyond me.  I do hope the other bird will be ok and I hope the individual responsible does get caught! :o(

  4. Doesn't surprise me Joan. There are some sad cases wandering this earth. I have one on my doorstep - a farmer. Last year we lost a pair of resident Buzzards, after nasty little farmer had a pheasant shoot!!!

Hi, I'm Joan I live in Scotland with my hubby of 48 years. We are both retired and enjoying life to the full well nearly. We are always out and about doing this and that. We love the countryside and do a bit of birdwatching and even twitch from time to time. We also visit art galleries and hubby does a bit of watercolour painting. Me I read a lot mainly thillers. I have been been keeping a journal for over five years over on AOL but we are being thrown out so this is my new home.
