Haith's Wildlife Blog:
Cage & Aviary Birds Magazine were good enough to cover our World Wildlife Day events this month and they were amazed to see our efforts reach as far as Kenya.
Spring is a great time of year. It’s the return of many things including spring flowers like daffodils, crocuses, and tulips.
We're on route to the breeding season – we're marching into spring - and now is a good time to review our foods.
The Song Thrush (Turdus philomelos) can be seen all year round and is quite easy to identify as it is slightly smaller than the Mistle Thrush. It has even brown upperparts and buff underparts spotted brown and its underwing colour is pale yellowish-brown. Its distinctive song, which has repeated musical phrases, has frequently been referred to in poetry.
Our veterinary advisor, Professor John E Cooper FRCVS and his wife Margaret E Cooper, are out in Kenya at the moment and they too are supporting World Wildlife Day.
