It’s always really rewarding to be able to help out in these situations and a very important part of the work we do.
Pugneys Country Park is a great place for a day out especially when the weather is good.
This afternoon we will be taking the birds up there as there are always plenty people. We have an arrangement with the park that we can set up there any weekend, so if we don’t have any shows booked we often go up there.
If you haven’t been, it really is a lovely place to spend the day. There are water sports on the lake, a miniature train and if you fancy a walk you can go up to Sandal Castle. There’s plenty space for the kids to tire themselves out, and that’s always good!
Alex Wilkinson of Wilkinson Photography took this smashing shot of Orville. I’d like to thank him for letting me show you it.

We do get a lot of positive feedback from all the people who have enjoyed our displays,
but this one from Sue is one of the nicest we have had.
Thank you very much and I hope we can be of service to you again.
“Not only were the Wise Owl team
professional,entertaining and talented !
But so were the humans that came with them!
A wonderful experience not to be missed.”
We will be displaying 7 birds including owls, hawks and buzzards. No falcons tomorrow as it is breeding time!
Flying displays dependant on weather.
Should be a great family day, with lots of other attractions and food served all day ( and beer lol)
Wayne & Katrina Auty
IT IS hard to imagine quite how Wayne and Katrina Auty must have felt yesterday morning when they released a tawny owl they had nursed to health back into the wild.
The Scissett couple were asked to take care of the owl which was found by a walker trapped on a fishing line and badly injured.
Yesterday, the couple were able to return this beautiful adult bird to the area where it was found in the hope that it will be reunited with its mate.
The Autys currently have 10 birds of prey at their Scissett home and say any wild rescue birds stay with them until they recover and can be released back into the wild.
It is thanks to their dedication, skill and patience that some of these wonderful birds are restored to health and to their natural habitat. We applaud them and wish them well in their future work
What a terrible headline, but it’s nice to make the newspapers!
