          Wouldn't it be lovely if the aviary were used to house birds that can no longer be free due to past injury. I rehabilitate wildlife here in the States and sometimes an owl or songbird has such a badly injured wing, etc. it can't fend for itself in the wild, but can live quite nicely in captivity. Seems a nice fit since Ballyfin pays such care to wildlife and has a particular interest in falconry.
