Dabbling in Aviculture

Steven Tuffy, our Assistant Production Manager, rears and breeds birds in his spare time. Ste’s most recent aviculture endeavour has been breeding Song Thrushes, a popular bird known for its loud, beautiful song.

In Steven’s most recent flight, the mother had rejected two of her young leaving them to fend for themselves. Choosing to hand-rear them, Steven has brought them to our St Helens works every day for the last 3 weeks for hourly feeding, spending time in both Barry’s office (Managing Director) and Bob’s office (Compliance Coordinator).

Following their 3 week holiday at NL Williams Group, they’ve grown tremendously well, fledged, and are enjoying a life of luxury in Steven’s aviary at home.
