I'm linking my post to Wild Bird Wednesday hosted by Steward Monckton. Do visit his interesting blog with the most amazing bird photos here
And no post would be complete, without an update on the pups: day 21! (they're three weeks old today!)

Argh! This lady woke us with her flashing camera!
I can scratch my own ear now!
Although all photos above were taken while pups were in the hut, Michael and I spend fifteen minutes twice a day playing in the enclosure with the pups. It's still a challenge to get them to lap enough milk but I'm sure they're learning as we go on. Princess is less tense when they're on the ground and actually seems to enjoy snuffling and licking them while they explore the widening world.
Here's wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday.
