Swinton Bivouac is busy preparing for the spring season

Swinton Bivouac is busy preparing for the spring season, with the yurts going back up for the summer season, new menus on the way, and new look milkshakes in the cafe which our operations manager has been working on, each glass is drizzled with the sauce of your choice and milk shaken with delicious Brymor ice cream and of course topped with cream and sprinkles.

We also have a new addition to the birds of prey aviaries, we are delighted to introduce Doogle the Bengal Eagle Owl, who has been settling in well to his new aviary and is getting ready to meet everyone on experience days throughout the summer.

Bengal Eagle Owl Facts

  • Indian eagle owls pretend to have wing injury or fly in a zigzag manner when they want to distract predators and to keep them away from their offspring.
  • Calls of Indian eagle owl are associated with misfortune in India. People believe that Indian eagle owl predicts death of a family member if it vocalizes from the roof of the house.
  • Indian eagle owls reach adult size at the age of 10 weeks, but they depend on their parent until the age of 6 months.

Fresh daffodils will be on our tables next week which we pick every few days from Mandy’s (our room manager) farm.
