Trying to find Mum

Trying to find Mum

Attempted to reunite this Pipistrelle pup with his mum last night. Even though a couple of bats flew-in close to the pup and showed interest...unfortunately there were no takers, so we all came home again and I will try again tonight.  Fingers crossed.  Meanwhile, the...

We have finally bought masks. Thought our Buffs would do, but they're a tad warm for summer days. Couldn't find bats, so to remind me of Mosi, my wolf buddy and wolves, this seemed appropriate.    Mosi and me ... and a photo of Mosi as a grand ol' lady can be seen in...

Onwards and Upwards

Our lovely white pigeons left for their new home today.  Not only were they our pets for four years, it was also a new venture that unfortunately never got off the ground due to family health issues.  It was heartbreaking having to part with them - but we have...

Just a little note to say thank you for your continued support.  Over the past week I have received two orders for 'Peacock' Coaster Gift Sets plus a 'Gentle Giant' African Elephant Greetings Card.  The other good news is that my knee is slowly but surely improving -...

Waiting for Mum

Waiting for Mum

A quick catch-up to say that for the last two nights we have visited the house where our rescued baby bat was found.  On both evenings our pup sat patiently on her heat-mat waiting for  mum to come and collect her.  On both occasions, a Pipistrelle bat flew-in close...

Another call today re: a bat rescue.  A Pipistrelle pup was found crawling across a kitchen floor.  It appears she'd fallen through a tiny gap in the ceiling close to the boiler.  The lady of the house did all the right things: placed a folded soft cloth in a shoe...

Mrs Peacock & Chicks

Mrs Peacock and her chicks. This was the view from my studio window on June 18th last year. What a difference a year makes. Sadly, I have no idea whether there are any chicks at the Larmer Tree Gardens this year as, for the past month, the lodge has been covered in...

Mosi ‘n’ Me

Mosi ‘n’ Me

Am really sorry to hear that dear Mosi has passed away. From 2006-2010 I was involved with the UK Wolf Conservation Trust. I had been invited by Denise Taylor, UKWCT Specialist Advisor and Prof. Marco Musiani from Calgary University, to illustrate two books concerned...

Flying Free

Flying Free

Lovely to see my 2nd rescued female Pipistrelle bat fly high and free tonight. Just over a week ago she was cat attacked, but thankfully didn't receive any serious injuries and has progressed well. I returned her to the area in which she was found; she knew exactly...

Brown Long-Eared Bat Survey

Brown Long-Eared Bat Survey

Am a bit concerned tonight, as it was my annual Brown Long-Eared bat roost count tonight and no bats appeared.  For nearly 20yrs we have had a Brown Long-eared bat maternity roost in our loft.  It used to be the third largest known colony in the South West.  The...
