Two new arrivals are making fast friends at Totnes Rare Breeds this summer. Benjie the Bengal Eagle Owl and Digger the Burrowing Owl are proving extremely popular with visitors.

Benjie is being taught how to fly to a glove, and thrives on the attention. He is getting very good at swooping above visitors’ heads in the Hedgehog Hospital, and will soon be ready to try outside, where there are more distractions.

Digger is less in the limelight, as so far he seems, unsurprisingly, to prefer burrowing under his blanket to more ostentatious activities. His two yellow eyes shining out are irresistible!
