My name is John Lowes and I am a falconry enthusiast from Durness. I am contacting you as a last resort in the hope you may be willing to help in finding any possible information regarding my Tengmalm’s owl Harry, who escaped from my aviary on 29th of October.
I have made several requests via local media outlets for any sightings or information about his whereabouts, but so far have drawn a blank. I have owned Harry for almost 5 years and aside from his non-negligible monetary worth he is of great sentimental value to me. He is very comfortable around humans and has not had to naturally hunt for prey before, so I think it is likely he will be in the vicinity of people/buildings, however the species is also migratory at this time of year so it would not be unusual for him to have moved a short distance such as across to Orkney.
I was hoping it might be possible for you to share a request for information via your Facebook page or other place in order to gain public exposure? Should any info be forthcoming allowing me to head to Orkney to retrieve him I would provide monetary reward to the person involved.
