Yaxley was brought to us in 2007 by a young chap who couldn’t handle or control him.  The chap took away and Indian eagle-owl which had been out on displays and was much easier to handle.  A few weeks later the young chap had to bring this one back too, but we appreciated his honesty and were happy to have it back.

Ater just a few weeks Yaxley had grown so much the lad barely recognised him.  Hey loves to sit at the front of his avery, mainly waiting for his food!
