Feathers and Fur at Dormy House

Tracey Jepson, Manager of Dormy House, said: “Four black boxes were carried into the lounge and, as each one was opened, there were sighs of delight from residents and staff alike! First we were introduced to ‘Wiggy’ the Barn Owl.

"Wiggy loved the attention and even danced around to show her pleasure. Next came ‘Ash’ the Tawny Owl who, though a little shyer, also enjoyed being stroked by our residents.

“The second two boxes were much larger than the first two, and the contents did not disappoint! First came ‘Charlie’ the Indian Eagle Owl. Charlie, we were informed, was relatively new to performing and was a little jumpy. Every4one stood in awe of him when he stretched his wings.

"Last, but by no means least, came ‘Meg’ the Great Grey Owl; supreme and elegant with the most gorgeous eyes.

"All the birds were extremely well behaved and very friendly, with the residents all enjoying a very hands on experience with these great birds that most of us never get to see this up close and personal.

"Some relatives had even timed a visit to their loved one to coincide with the visit from the birds, in order to enjoy the event as well!”
