There are very few species of bird found in the UK that have not at some time in the past 27 years been admitted to Vale.
Although we are a hospital for British wildlife we
do occassionally take in other, more exotic
species, such as the macaw pictured.
Many birds of prey are also admitted to Vale
e.g. the long-eared owl pictured far left,as
well as buzzards, kestrels, sparrowhawks,
tawny, barn and little owls and sometimes rarer birds of prey such as hobbys and peregrine falcons.
To see birds such as these at such close quarters
is a true privilege.
