I have just been advised that a further outbreak of avian influenza is reported in the Gaspereau Valley. At present birds within a three kilometre radius are likely to be destroyed. If this contains the disease we may be able to resume feedings. If it does not the next exclusion zone is a ten kilometre radius.
Things will probably unfold more slowly than we would like, but we will not resume until the situation has been resolved.
I will continue to visit the feeding site at normal feeding times to advise visitors of the circumstances. If you are planning to visit and would like an update, feel free to call me on 902 582 1708.
Malcolm lives in Sheffield Mills and is our resident eagle feeder. He feeds the eagles daily and has a unique relationship with these large birds. These are his adventures!
