The Red weather warning issued by the Met Office for Thursday 2nd March meant that we took the decision to cancel our Advanced Training Course (ABOSM) in the morning and closed the office at 1pm to give our staff time to get home safely.
Although we’ve seen more snow here in previous years this was the first time we can remember so much ice on the trees and even on the tussocks of grass in the field.
The office remained closed on Friday because of the conditions although there was someone on-site to feed the resident birds and take care of the casualty Tawny Owl in our Owl Hospital.
We’ve been feeding the wild birds here over the winter. See our Bird Cake recipe here
