Everyone at Wide Eyes has been super excited to welcome a new member to the team this week.
Midas is an 18 year old male Golden x Steppe eagle that Luke worked with over ten years ago. When Martin from extreme falconry got in touch to say he was looking for a new home for him, we just knew he had to join the team.
A lot of work has gone in to preparing for his arrival. The team have had to clear an entire new area, the ground has had to levelled and a lot of wheel barrow loads of shingle have been put down. A brand new mews was constructed to house him, and then a couple of days before we went to pick him up we found the mews flooded and had a last minute panic to put in additional drainage.
