Feath­ered friends

Scottish Field - - LETTERS -

The res­i­dents of Bonty Court Shel­tered Hous­ing in Aboyne are very lucky to have a lovely gar­den to sit in and en­joy the sun­shine and each other’s com­pany. We have lots of flow­ers and shrubs, and best of all lots of dif­fer­ent species of birds. My favourites are the thrush and lit­tle Jenny wren. Next week, a man is bring­ing his owls for us to en­joy – a barn owl, a tawny owl, a long-eared owl, and I for­get the fourth (old age!) but we will all en­joy han­dling them. We feed our birds and it’s great to watch the mag­pies at night cir­cu­lat­ing way up high in the sky. Now it has dawned on me the fourth owl is a snowy swl. The man says they all have names – Boris, Snow­drop, Ti­mothy and Lo­gan. I am all ex­cited, al­ready! Mil­dred Le­outlo, Aboyne
