Oxford Bird Rescue nears the end of its busiest little owl season on record

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

Oxford bird rescuer Scott Bowman is gearing up for an influx of hawks following his busiest little owl season ever.

Bowman, who runs Oxford Bird Rescue in North Canterbury with wife Tracey, said the volume of little owls they looked after this year had been huge, with about 30 juveniles coming in for rehabilitation.

That was about 10 times the number they would normally expect, and he believed it could be because of a decrease in bugs and insects, the main component of their diet.

Oxford Bird Rescue has been named as a finalist in the MainPower Community Fund, and North Cantabrians are encouraged to vote for them by Friday, March 13.

Avoid malls and crowded shops, Aspiring Beauty is my home business I run from a beautiful clinic. The focuses is only on you as we only book one client at a time. So after being cooped up in lockdown for so long why not treat yourself to a relaxing facial or a well deserved pedicure. Aspiring beauty also specializes in waxing and sugaring which is a waxing alternative which works even better.
