In Support of Doctors, Nurses and Carers

I am unsure exactly what I feel about striking action: I am anti-establishment enough to think that it must always be justified, but I have never been employed enough to truly understand the motivations.

However I thought charities that support the work of medical staff (one of the most common occupations on the list of those that cause depression) deserve a mention in light of this.

In particular, this week (18 – 24 June) is Carers Week. Events are still ongoing, so check out their site, register, give back to some of the people with one of the most stressful roles in our society.

More Owls

So this blog is off to a moderately slow start, but among other things, last week I went to an owl sanctuary. My tiny mind almost exploded.

The World Owl Trust (excellent name) is in the grounds of Muncaster Castle in Western Cumbria, and acts as a breeding sanctuary for species of owl. They have several permanent residents, but mainly the key is to produce more baby owls that can be introduced back into the wild.

In case you aren’t sold on all this already, here is a multitude of pictures:
