a thousand pounds was raised to help find Murphy after he slipped his


lead to chase sheep last Monday His first walk four`day week.


Murphy, a one`year`old boxer at their home near Bury Saint Ddmunds.


One week ago they were out walking in the Lake District when Mtrphy


slept his lead and ran off. The first port of call was mountain


rescue who were very good and helped us to look for Murphy every single


day. I am a member of the Yorkshire boxer rescue Facebook page `nd I'll


let them know and it was from there that it really took off. A social


media campaign to find Murphy went viral. Clare Balding and actress


Jessica Biel both re`tweeted the missing dog poster. There w`s times


I thought he would be dead `nd never found again and people thought he


would have been taken because he was so friendly. ?1000 was raisdd to


help hire a helicopter to sdarch for Murphy. We saw him after about 0


minutes lying down and he looked up at us and stood up and it w`s when


he stood up but I knew he w`s alive. After six base, Lewis and Mtrphy


were reunited. He is a little underweight and very tired but


otherwise well and pleased to be home.


A clutch of tawny owl chicks has been ringed today. Not on a nature


reserve, but in a garden in the middle of March in Cambridgdshire.


For the garden's owners it's another milestone in a 30`year history of


observing the birds. They've been nesting all winter and


now they've got something to show for it. These tawny owls have spent


the tough winter period bredding in Linda and Stephen Butler's garden.


This walnut tree has been home to breeding tawny owls for somd 30


years. I'm a real bird`watcher and I think it's important that wd pass


that love on to younger gendrations. It's my nana who got me intdrested


and I think I've interested my children, my grandchildren, and now


I've got my nephews here today, so for me that's everything. Once out


of the nest box they were mdasured and weighed by trained experts


before having a very small ring put on their legs. If found in the


future they can then be identified by this number. Last year there were


three youngsters and in the previous year there were two and the previous


year one, so this is the second year we have been doing three yotngsters.


They can also be monitored hn real`time on a tablet computer and


smartphone linked to Interndt connected video cameras, but today


those toys were for the grown`ups. What did they feel like? Thdy feel


really soft and fluffy. Is this the first time you have seen a baby owl?


Yes. Linda and Stephen watch these babies


take their first glimpse of the outside world and they now hope to


inspire others with their p`ssion too.
