I'm sure hormones are the likely cause of Merlins departure and as he has been brought up since a fledgling with you he will return to show off his wife once he's settled with one. They are such clever, intelligent birds that he will soon learn how to cope in the big wide world. You are his family so I'm sure he will visit often and might even taken up residence in your rookery. If he gets hungry he knows the best place to go to get fed.... You!
fingers crossed he visits soon.
all the best Mandy

I think Josh's entry about Merlin's departure was a little on the negative side. He can feed himself, I saw him selecting insects from amongst moss on the roof tiles just the other day, and now the frosts are over there is no reason why he shouldn't survive a night outdoors. He has recently spent time away from the farm on about three or four occasions and been missing for up to four hours. Before the rooks returned en masse to the rookery, he was visited on several occasions by a lone rook, who at the time he seemed to take little interest in. As time has gone on and the frantic romantics amongst the trees have become increasingly desperate, I believe his hormones have finally taken over and he has gone off to do what rooks do! We can only hope that one day he will return, even if only on a passing visit. Jo .

We had an old highland pony here for years and she would lie flat out in the field and let the hoody crows pull out all her winter coat! Don't know what my equine bunch will make of Magic. Thanks for your input on caring for Magic, makes me feel like I'm getting it right.
