We had perfect weather for lazing in the sun last month but a chap can’t relax with all that tweeting going on. Not the volunteers, they don’t have time to look at their mobile phones! I was worried about a little bird constantly calling until Mum told me to leave it alone.
Apparently, it is normal for a fledgling to spend time on the ground whilst learning to fly. If you see one, observe it discreetly, return it to the nest or place it on a branch away from predators. If it is injured, call the nearest wild life rescue otherwise wait for the parents who may be nearby waiting to feed it.
I also saw bees in the garden which prompted one of the girls to say: a swarm in May is worth a load of hay, in June it’s worth a silver spoon but July is not worth a fly! So now, you see, I know much more about the birds and the bees!
Hay was on the menu for the many rabbits we have, including two and a half year old sisters, Millie and Billie. They have been with us for a long time because they had territorial issues on arrival. Since moving into larger accommodation they have become more sociable and like to ‘help’ on cleaning out days! They are very fond of each other and sit together, watching the world go by.
If you are looking for a new pet please visit us, 10am-1pm, Thursday to Sunday. Animals bring so much joy to families and those living alone. Some even rule the roost like me, Kenny (the Boss) Chihuahua.
