It has been brought to my attention today that Google have relisted Three Owls Bird Sanctuary & Reserve on their advertising portal after a number of years of absence. It's a free listing which they had made up - however following a flood of calls today for everything from dogs, cats, a chinchilla, and even a parakeet; I investigated this evening and have corrected the errors I could find. Hopefully this will help keep the lines clear this Christmas for the genuine wild bird rescue calls to get through. We are still persevering with the limited mobile Helpline reception in Rochdale; it is sketchy, but on an improving trend.

If anyone notices anything online regarding Three Owls that concerns them - please do get in touch. We do not pay for any advertising, but still get a steady stream of assistance requests from around the globe. The current edition of this website has received over 4.8 MILLION visits in recent years.
