We took in what appear to be 12 Rock Doves last night. Lovely little chaps.
The people who owned were moving and didn't want to take them, they destroyed a few that were hanging around and then burnt the Dovecote.
The new people moving in didn't want them either and were going to shoot them so we said they could come here and went to collect them last night.
After a bit of a shuffle round, we sorted an aviary for them. I think we will have to keep them in for a few weeks and then build them a new Dovecote here.
We also got another quail last night, Queenie, who is keeping Primrose company.
Other good news is that we think that we are going to be able to register to get charitable status which means that we will be able to get gift aid etc so that may help us on the financial side this year.
Nelson is doing well and is now spending time outside during the day but he will have to stay on soft food until his beak re-grows.
Percy now has the bandage off his wing and is doing well, another few days and he should be ok in an aviary. Hope is great. I will leave her another day or two to make sure the canker doesn't come back and then she too can go in an aviary ready for release.
Hospital is ready for plastering which EB thinks he can get done after work this week so we are back on track. :)
