I take great pleasure in introducing Sage to people & telling them all about her they are almost always really impressed to meet her & fascinated to know more about her. My trips to various places have collected £1244 for macmillan plus Sage is a steadier more calmer relaxed bird than she would otherwise have been if she had not benefited through socialisation from meeting so many people in addition to this it has helped educate younger people about the joy & worth of raptors which has to be a good thing. She has also appeared on tv a couple of times & has quite a following. I do feel privileged to be a part of this & look forward to more of the same.
For the last 9 years I have been trying to resolve a planning issue to create a small holiday site in existing buildings to further promote & educate about these wonderful birds sadly my local council have been doing their upmost to stop this at taxpayers’ expense it has driven me to near ruin it has sent me into extreme depression to the point of considering the unthinkable through self-harm & only this week am told we now need to move out & sleep in our car as we have not been able to regularise our planning status & all because we are not a part of the old boy network. It is no wonder why people get so immersed by the virtues of animals over people.
I have updated the explanation about why falconers often accuse owls of being stupid which now makes it more compelling & difficult to argue to the contrary this can be seen at http://www.twinmoorview.com/eagle-owls/
