Owl Raises Funds for Care Centre

Many of you will remember the Tengmalm's Owl that was in the west of Shetland earlier this year: the first seen in Shetland for over a century and the first twitchable bird in Britain since ... well probably since the word 'twitch' was invented. Jackie Moar was the initial finder of the bird, in her garden at Tumblin (before it moved to Lea Gardens). Jackie asked that money be donated for her place of work, Wastview Care Centre in Walls, and she recently informed us that the total raised was £1613.46. Many thanks to everyone who donated.
