A Day Out To – Screech Owl Sanctuary

This week, we decided to visit somewhere we haven’t been for a long time – Screech Owl Sanctuary.

We were looking at local places to visit recently, taking into account where we can do something outside. Both to make the most of the nice weather, and also something that isn’t just gardens; because I don’t want you all to get bored of me(!)

We last visited about 9 years ago, which really surprised us looking back! Just because we didn’t think it was that long ago.

My heart goes out to those affected by the coronavirus, whether literally, or in terms of stress from the lockdown, working from home, home schooling, or those who are lonely and isolated. We are all in this together!

This Week

There is only so much you can really say considering I last worked on the 23rd March! So, here we are at the beginning of May and while I haven’t been up to much, I thought I’d share what has been going on this April!
