"Wildcat Kitten" 

The kittens have been great fun over the past few weeks, bringing many people in to see them. I haven't actually had that much time to photograph them myself, but have got a few nice ones of them that I like. I will share a few later when they are older, a few of them growing and playing etc, but here are a couple in the mean time.

Leo, our long eared owl chick, is really growing fast. Nearly there in these two photos, and practically there in real life now. Only his ear tufts to fully come through. Like with the kittens, I will share a series of him growing on this blog soon. Just need to take him out for a photo shoot now he has his tufts :-)

And one of our new roe deer, Willow. She is really friendly, and has made our other doe, Chestnut, bolder too.

Thanks for looking :-)

"Leo" our long-eared owl

A few new births over the recent months, and lots of interest for visitors. One of the new stars is Leo, a long eared owl we hatched out here at the Centre.

You can see he is growing very fast, and is even more 'adult' looking than this now!

Perhaps our biggest draw at the moment are our wildcat kittens. After a hiatus, we decided to breed them again this year.

Kendra had three kittens, all currently healthy and doing very well.

Just a quick post to share a couple of pics, but I will do a longer one on both the kittens and the long eared owl showing them growing etc later in the year.

And a quick phone picture to end with. 5 day old polecat kitts! Rarely see these, but we had to move them off display with their um as she was not settling. Pleased to say they are all doing well now, and she is much happy with them off view.

Thanks for looking :-)
