2014 has been an eventful time here at the Rookery. Early in the year we adopted two special needs tawny owls from a sanctuary. They had been injured in car accidents as fledglings and were taken to Wing and a Prayer. Once they had recovered, it was discovered that they both had brain damage and they were homed as pets. A couple of years later they were taken to a different sanctuary when their owner moved to London, and from there they came on to us. At the beginning of May they were joi...Read Full Post »

Cromarty left us in September, with rooks who came to us from Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire. The rook formerly known as Krypto fell in love with Clark Kent and has been renamed Lana Lang, they have a lovey dovey session every morning after breakfast with much crooning and beak kissing.
Staying with us till next year is Byzantia, who can't fly very well at the moment, but will be able to once she grows her next set of feathers. Dizzy has been quite the rookaburra Daddy and...Read Full Post »

This year we have only one rookling, she came from the rookery here, and has been called Cromarty. Last Saturday, she came to London with us, and was guest of honour at Daughter Holly's marriage.
On Sunday, 4 orphan magpies arrived who were rescued after their nest had been shot to bits and their parents killed. They are lovely little birds and will hopefully have a safe future here on our land.

Hello corvid friends, my name is Jasmine and I live with Magic's human.
Actually I live in her nest, I have the whole space to myself which is great because I can make a lot of mess, wander about all day and not get the slightest bit bored in here!!
i better tell you how I ended up here before I start chatting on. I was minding my own business with my parents. We had just made me second or third flight to the farm and i was getting the hang of things when a shadow went over me and...Read Full Post »

how are you all? Hope you all had a lovely summer even if there wasn't much sunshine.
I am a very pleased chap as that upstart Lunar has gone and life is once more peaceful. Apparently he got quite good at flying once he grew some tail feathers and is living with a group of rooks and jackdaws out on the farm. all I can say is "about time!"
I have noticed some strange noises at the other end of the house, not rook squawks but jackdaw yelps. I don't know e...Read Full Post »

This year we had 4 early rook releases, Shelby from our own rookery, Sanchez from a neighbouring village, and 2 more from Lincolnshire.
They all spent several weeks living in the cherry tree next to the farmhouse, and then gradually integrated with the flock.
Joining house rooks Clark & Lois, we have Krypto, who was found in a bramble bush looking very poorly indeed. He was not expected to survive, but against all odds he has, and although unable to fly he ha...Read Full Post »

Hi to all you lovely corvie lovers out there. Sorry this post is so long over due but there has been some huge upheavals here and i have been thoroughly unsettled and not at all pleased with changes but as my human does try her best i am now feeling more content again.
That cheeky little upstart Lunar is still here, in my cage!! That bird annoys me so much, he is either demanding I feed him or is trying to pull out my tail feathers, he really does need to learn some proper manners! My h...Read Full Post »

This year we have large, healthy Branchies, who fledged very early & are now learning to fly.
3 that I found on the ground made a quick recovery and were able to return to the lower branches of the poplars where their parents came to feed them and help them back to the treetops.
A 4th rookling is unable to fly and is settling into life around the house with Dizzy, Clark and Lois.
