Its been a blustery day in Rutland and it has encouraged the Manton Bay chicks to start wing-flapping for the first time. I say wing-flapping, it’s actually more like wing-flopping, but is another sign that they are developing at an incredible rate. They are still about four weeks away from making their first flights, but they will become more and more active over the coming weeks. Be sure to keep a close eye on the webcam!

A huge thanks to everyone who has sponsored us for the Three Peaks challenge. Our total now stands at over £3600 with gift aid – a fantastic response. Without wishing to be greedy, it would be brilliant to get to £4000, so if you haven’t already sponsored us, then please consider doing so. You can sponsor us online here. To read more about the challenge and why we did it, click here.
