Cowart's Common Room

Good Evening Owls,

Better connection to the internet this evening, not so yesterday, sorry I could not make it to the perch, thank you Blackbird for posting.

I have the wood burner lit, very chilly in the evenings and more rain on the way.

Watched the second first part of the detective series Vera last night, what a brilliant actress Brenda Blethyn is.

Happy belated St Georges Day.! today it is my 42nd wedding anniversary but no cards please, medal may come in handy thoughSmile

Came across a beautiful Barn Owl on my travels with Daisy yesterday with a broken wing, rang the RSPCA and informed the local gamekeeper who would be letting me know how Owly is progressing, incredible large eyes close up these beautiful birds have, I do hope Owly will be alright.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Blackbird's Avatar Imagine looking at an owl eye to eye- I do hope that it gets the help it needs to mend. They can do some pretty amazing things these days.

Our weeks of constant and often heavy rains have passed and I hope that yours are on the way out too. It doesn't make for much of a spring. The flower from last night is almost the same shade as the Camellia but it is a flowering quince, sometimes called a Japanese quince. They do sometimes set fruits but they are quite different from the orchard quince tree.

I would love to see Vera- I wonder when or is it will make it over here.
Off to book and bed,
Sweet dreams, owls and larks.

Inthemud's Avatar Camilla, you do deserve a medal for your 42 years! You're a saint!
Hope owl will be ok, such beautiful birds.

Missed Vera as hubby doesn't like that sort of programme! Will have to watch on portable next time!

Fennie's Avatar Just out of interest - can birds' wings be mended. In childhood one reads all the time of birds with broken wings which are mended with splints. They occur in every other Enid Blyton story - but she never goes on to say whether the bird recovered and, more importantly, made a successful life back in the wild. I would have thought that birds' wings were the equivalent of racehorses' legs. But I don't know and any information you have Camilla would be gratefully received. I don't know either why racehorses with fractured bones have to be shot there and then. I would have thought some split or plaster arrangement could be devised - or even the leg amputated - and the beast still be able to enjoy an honourable retirement with offspring maybe as a bonus. Again, perhaps, Camilla or Patsy you have information.

Withy Brook's Avatar If a horse is to have a leg mended, then I believe that is has to be slung up. This is neither happy for the horse or very good for it. Patsy, are you there? I don't think a horse can manage without a leg can it, as a dog-type animal can?
A medal from me too Camilla - nuff said!
Love the picture.

We rescued a Gulliemot with a broken wing who made a successful recovery and was sent back to sea again quite recovered and able to fly (not that Gulliemots fly well anyway more of a flap and hope for the best)Wink

Camilla's Avatar Very HappyVery Happy Thanks FN, definately an endurance those 42 years. Pleased to hear the bird you rescued made a successful recovery and was able to fly away FN, fingers crossed my barn owl is alright too.

Thank you Fennie, Muddie and Blackbird. I will keep you informed how owly is doing. Blackbird - you might be able to get Vera on DVD on Amazon website(first series), the new second series has only just begun, saw part 1, another 3 parts to go, on every week here.

Muddie - my husband loathes the programme too, luckily he goes to bed quite early sometimes so I am able to watch it on my own..... sheer bliss, utter peace.Smile Thank you for your kind words Muddie, you are a sweetie.
