So as we end the year of 2021 we would like to thank everyone who visited us during this time. We would also like to say thank you to the organisations such as CADW for their support Again its been a strange year, there has been an increase in the Family Experience Days, people wanting to go out in the countryside with their children. We have also noticed more local people visiting, but again due to COVID we have lost all our visitors from abroad. Lets hope 2022 can see the change of this, BUT whatever happens we all need to be safe.
The other issue that all bird keepers are having to face is Avian Flu. By each year it is getting worse and infections are rising in the UK. It happens in the winter months when migrating birds from the east visit. The main issues seem to be waterfowl, waders and BOP who eat birds with the flu. We have decided that from 2022 we will be operating for experience days between march and October so we will not face the flu issue. We shall still be able to attend schools for education purposes.
So from us all at the team have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing you all in 2022.
