Brendoncare Froxfield care home welcomed back one of its favourite visitors, Jason Ashcroft of Falconry UK on Monday (8th January).
This time, he brought with him seven of his beautiful, rare birds – three owls, two falcons, a kookaburra and vulture.
The residents and team at Brendoncare Froxfield were fascinated by each of the birds, especially resident Diane Bailey who met her namesake, Bailey the white faced owl. Everyone a chance to see the birds close up.
He gave everyone lots of facts and figures about each of the birds, some of which are very rare. He also told a story about when some of the birds were used in a film starring John Travolta and Tom Cruise.
Lesley Marshall, Brendoncare Froxfield’s Deputy Manager, said afterwards: “It is always a joy when Jason and his birds come to visit us. We never know which members of his flock we will be meeting. Our residents love seeing the birds especially the cheeky ones like the kookaburra.
“We are very grateful to the Froxfield League of Friends for supporting us with this visit. We hope Jason will be back in the summer to see us again.”
