Zoo Vet

Zoo vet Matt Brash gave a fascinating speech to our audience last night.This TV vet's talk on how he cares for some of the world's most dangerous animals was both funny and exciting - especially his descriptions of how to castrate a hippo!
Matt Brash said that much of his time is now taken up with supporting the RSPCA on prosecutions for badger baiting - it is still surprisingly common.
He and I donated the money taken for the evening to Ryedale Rescue in Malton, where Jean Thorpe rehabilitates injured animals and releases them into the wild.
We are fully booked again for our walks to see winter migrants and to watch red kites this weekend so let's hope the visitors see plenty of birdlife!
