Dear Friends,
I am writing to thank you once again so much for coming to collect a pigeon from Wheat Lea, Oxford, last Sunday eve, the BH w/end. I planned to write sooner, my apologies, I have been ill. Phil very kindly came a long way to collect the pigeon, which we had managed to cut down from where s/he had got stuck in some thorny bushes on the quarry wall at my friends place. I live in London. I am writing to ask after this pigeon - we would all like to know, if possible, if he/she survived, and if so, how is he/she doing? My friend has 2 small children, and we were all part of trying to get the pigeon down, with a neighbor and a ladder, and so they would also like to know how he/she is. If possible, please do let us know, either way! Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. I also appreciate your amazing work, it's amazing. Respect! Thanks, Yours sincerely, Kate B Xx

Thank you Steve for taking in the injured pigeon found yesterday. Thank you Jack for taking the time to show me around.
Didn't catch all your names but the work you do is amazing!!!

To Steve and the team

Just a note to say thank you for taking in my fledgling Thrush last month, providing the care and time it needed to fully recover. It was heart-warming to hear, when I called you a few days later, that it was doing well, had made friends with the other Thrushes in the garden, and would soon be released.

It is such a worry that our wild bird numbers are in decline, and important to acknowledge the work and time you and the team dedicate to giving our wild birds that second chance of life in the wild, and in turn helping to reduce numbers declining further.

Thanks again.

I'm in awe. Aimee has just left our home for the second time today except this time she left having hauled a dazed wood pigeon out of the chimney. He hadn't escaped earlier today as we thought; he'd made his way further UP the chimney which left Aimee feeling around for him, blind and with both hands up a very sooty chimney. I watched later as Aimee cleaned his nose, eyes and throat with some cotton buds, fed him up with cat food and helped him to some water before finally encouraging him to head home...I could never have provided anything like that level of care. Thank you so much for making the double trip and without complaint. He's a lucky pigeon!
Posted by Annmarie on August 20, 2013 - 02:07 pm
Huge thank you to Raven Haven who were very pro-active with my 'pigeon trapped in the chimney' dilemma this morning. In particular to Aimee, who arrived minutes after the little Houdini made his own escape. I've made a donation which I hope will at least cover the cost of your journey.
Best wishes to all staff and birds.

Thanks so much for taking in the tiny collared dove I brought in last week. You were the only person able to offer immediate help - others offered feeding advice but we knew he was getting cold and that we couldn't keep him warm enough to survive, which you confirmed when you popped him into the very warm incubator. You are doing a great job and we are very happy to have found you when we needed help swiftly. We hope he is doing well - and thanks again

Hi Steve,

Thanks so much for your calm phone advice the other day.Orville, the Birmingham magpie chick who fell out of a tree, is thriving on Go Cat, as you suggested. He is training us well in his care now :-) Best wishes to you all and thanks again.

We bought in a crow on Wednesday that had been injured by other crows! and have been before with a pigeon, we really appreciate what you do, and would not know what to do otherwise! We always seem to be coming across injured birds, so will probably come back soon anyhow!!

Thank you very much, we will make a donation too!

Sparrow hawk brought in yesterday 3April found by me and my dogs. How goes it. An old friend whose flying technique I thought reckless.

I've just read the story of how you started with Tarquin all those years ago. Simply wow!

Pigeon Rescue site gave me your details. Wonderful stories! I am still reading and got as far as spooky goings on - reminds me of when a white dove came down the chimney the day my mother died. I looked after a jackdaw last year that had fallen in oil and got quite attached to him before he was freed. I hope you don't mind if I put a link to your site from my blog? I am sure my readers would be interested. I am currently looking after a pigeon that was wounded by a hawk, a dove with PMV and a young dove. I know how much work they are, I am amazed at what you do! Very best wishes to you and all your birds.

This is wonderful, I didn't know there was a place in the UK like this. I've always wanted a raven of my own, they are beautiful birds! Your story of how all this came about is amazing, and I am thoroughly jealous :)
Please please let me know if you ever have chicks in need of a home.
Posted by Sue Brassett on October 24, 2012 - 04:52 pm
Hi there, I just want to say a big thank you for coming out and collecting the baby Collered Dove we found in Aldershot Town Centre. I loved the time I spent looking after it and even gave him the nickname of Baby.
I will be trying to sweet talk my parents tomorrow, to come and visit and see all the amazing work you guys and girls do.
Hopefully see you all soon.
Posted by Christina on October 17, 2012 - 03:50 pm
I love reading the tales and updates of life at Raven Haven. I do occasional rescue (mostly bird) and fully realise the challenges you deal with every day- plus you offer sanctuary as well. We have a sole jackdaw staying with us who still cannot fly after four months. He was very ill and the fact he is still alive is amazing. Corvids are tough, intelligent birds and they deserve more respect than they get. Great work, Raven Haven!

Thankyou so much for taking in the young pigeon (Billy) yesterday and hope that after antibiotics, rest and recouperation he'll be released back into the wild. Maybe one day we'll even see him sitting on our fence again ! I've made a donation to you today and hope that you're able to continue the fantastic work you do at this amazing sanctuary for many years to come. Thanks again.

Dear Steve and Shelley, on behalf of my brother, Nick and I, we would like to thank you so much for taking in the pigeon last week. Thank you also for showing us around the wonderful wild bird santury you have set up.It was really out of this world! As promised, I have made a donation on line for your work and God bless you for your dedication!
Posted by Dick Bailey on September 10, 2012 - 12:12 pm
Hi Steve & Team,
Thanks for taking in the juvenile pidgeon I found in front of the Oxford Rd Reading Tesco last Wednesday. I was pleased to to hear to day that it is now doing well and feedinf it's self. Well donr for the work your doing.
Best wishes, Dick.

Hi! Just found your website as I looked you up again, I met you a few mths ago you see, I contacted steve after my cat found a nest, there was one little survivor, you were with me within the hour to collect it - a baby robin you told me :) sadly tonight, it seems my predator cat has found another nest :( again, 2 died, 1 tiny survivor....it looks very newborn, eyes not yet open, perhaps a baby pigeon by looking at the pic on your site I just saw, yello feathers, long beak. Im trying to keep it warm tonight but not sure it'll survive the night. I hope the poor little mite does so you can collect it from me.

I think the work you do is commendable and I really admire it.
Hopefully, speak to you in morning

Hi Steve and Liz, thank you so much for taking in the abandoned baby pigeon from my work this week and showing me around all the other birds you have. I hope that the little one is now thriving with you guys and all the other pigeons you have. I think it's amazing what you do and admire greatly your care for all the birds that come in to Raven Haven. I'll surely be passing on your details to anyone else that has any injured / abandoned birds.
Posted by Nici on August 03, 2012 - 02:10 pm
Good luck to little Miracle and all the other foundlings you have taken in. I was in smiles and tears alternately whilst reading Tarquin's Tale and the story of your Rescue. I do believe that you and your family are compassionate and courageous people and representative of some of the highest qualities that people can possess. I will check out your FB page, and set up links to your site from Google+ as well as Twitter. You deserve all the help that you can get in helping out these amazing creatures. All the best from California!
Posted by Antonia Gray on July 28, 2012 - 07:40 pm
Hi Steve,
I just wanted to say thank you again for taking the time to go out and check on the duck with the wonky wing in Hurst yesterday. I'm sorry it turned out to be an unnecessary trip as the duck was ok, but I'm really glad to have my mind at ease about it - I would have worried for it every time I went past otherwise! So, thank you. And thanks for calling me back about it, and for looking after the blackbird we sent your way this week too! I've had a look at your website and blog, and am so impressed with the work you do and the lengths you go to to save and rehabilitate the birds. I've recommended you on my facebook, in case anyone in the area finds themselves in a situation like me yesterday, worried about a bird and not knowing who to call. Keep up the great work! We're lucky to have you nearby. Antonia

Posted by Caroline on July 20, 2012 - 02:29 pm
Thank you so much for taking in the 7 baby ducks that were abandoned by there mum. Its such a relief to know that they will get the best possible care from you all at Raven Haven.

Thanks again

Caroline - Broadmoor
Posted by Vickie Carn on July 13, 2012 - 05:26 pm
I just have to say that we really didnt know what to do with the small baby pigeon that was found in our vent at Bentalls today. It was such a relief to have found Raven's Haven online and so local to us too. We were all very relieved that the bird was handed over to a safe place and to such a helpful team. Thank you again. Vickie :)
Posted by dave seldon on July 08, 2012 - 12:22 pm
what a great bunch of people doing a fantastic job,on helping and looking after our wild birds.unlike the rspca these guys are not dictated by health and safety or just put animals to sleep because they need that little extra care and attention..these guys are the real deal and rescue birds that need help.they deserve our support for the work and dedication they put in to the rehabilitaion of our wild birds,and the care for life of birds who may never fly again,they all have a home here. hats off to you and keep doing what you are doing,thank you for being there.

Thank you so much for taking in the baby sparrow very late last night, amazing to see you literally breath life into him, although very sad that he didn't make it through the night.
It is wonderful work that you do and we look forward to coming back to see the other birds.
I will make another donation soon, I can imagine it is very costly keeping the little birds warm and feeding all your patients.
Thanks again, Marian.

I just wanted to thank you so much for taking in the baby sparrow I brought to you today. I know the little fellow is in such good caring hands and if anyone can get him back on the road to recovery you and your amazing team can. You guys are truly fantastic, you should all be very proud of yourselves. Thank you for the tour too, a donation is on it's way and I will tell everyone I know about Raven Haven, your work and dedication is invaluable. Thank you again :0)
Posted by Dave & Dave on April 28, 2012 - 06:36 pm
Many thanks for the tour today, Steve, it was a joy to meet some of the birds, and the work that you do is genuinely extraordinary. (Write that book, it'll brilliant!)

Very many best wishes, Dave

Thank you so much for taking in Barry the Partridge yesterday (that's what my fiance named him haha) I feel really lucky to have stumbled across you guys online, as I couldn't find anyone else to help. It was really great to be shown around by Steve, and to hear some of his stories. What you guys are doing there is amazing, and the bond that Steve has with all the birds is so strong, its heart warming. I hope Barry makes a full recovery, I know he is in excellent hands : )
Posted by Christine on March 08, 2012 - 07:37 pm
I read about Tarquin on the BBC news site and I really do hope he has his op and gets better very soon. As a funny coincidence, I'm currently reading Charles Dickens' "Barnaby Rudge" which features a talking raven called Grip! I couldn't help thinking it was fate which led me to Tarquin's story and so I decided to make a donation for him from me (and Grip!).
Posted by Rhiannon and Lucy on February 20, 2012 - 11:58 pm
Hi there Steve, this is Rhiannon from Aberystwyth, I spoke to you this evening regarding our injured rook! There's some lovely stories on this site, it's so nice to see professional people that genuinely care and treat each bird as an individual. I just wish there were more organisations like yours, as I've found there seems to be a lack of such places in Wales.
We will ring you tomorrow regarding our rook.
Rhiannon and Lucy

Thanks again for showing us around the haven the other weekend, it was so wonderful to be able to get up close with your amazing birds :)

I hope Tarquin is fighting fit once again

Hi Steve
it was a real pleasure meeting you today, I have just finished reading Tarquins story what an amazing one it is to.
You really do do a wonderful job, we can't wait to come and see your Birds.
Hope the collar dove makes a full recovery I know he is in good hands.

Posted by Marty & Sarah on October 24, 2011 - 08:07 pm
At the weekend we were fortunate enough to be given the details for RavenHaven by a local vet after rescuing an injured thrush. You were kind enough to take the bird into your care. I must say that we were taken aback with the grand tour of all your ravens and your Corvid 'family', not forgetting the little owls and other birds in your care. Many thanks for caring for the thrush and giving us an insight into the wonderful work that you are doing.

Hi Steve, thanks for showing us around and for taking in the baby pigeon. I was moved by the dedication that you and your team show to all birds.
The world needs more people in it like you.
Keep up the brilliant work.
Posted by Jason & Alison on March 12, 2010 - 03:51 pm
Hello Steve. Thanks very much for showing us around Raven Haven. Alison loved it and we were all amazed at how the raven flew right over our heads, their wings brushing our hair. It was very exciting lol
Alison feeds the crows outside the front of our house and this visit was a real treat for her on her birthday. Your parrot is very beautiful too. Real pleasure, thank you.

Posted by Mick Dawson on August 03, 2009 - 10:19 pm
Just wanted to say keep up the good work! i have always felt an affinity with corvids as my surname translates to "keeper of the jackdaws and our family crest has three jackdaws across the centre of it. i recently rescued a very underweight and confused young crow, i built him an aviary and he is now firmly rooted into the family (even my satanic bird murdering cat ignores him!)he has also made best friends with a pidgeon that my brother rescued. as soon as i am in a position to,i will definately be donating to your amazing and much appreciated work!good luck.

Thank you so much for the wonderful work you do. Can I come to visit? I found you when looking for source pictures for my mosaic of a large raven. I still have no idea how their wings work - so if you have a close up picture of a wing that would be great! I have donated some money today and if I sell my mosaic I will gladly give you some of that too for your project. Kind regards Flavia
Posted by T.Je on February 09, 2009 - 2:30 am
Stumbled here, accidentally, looking up information on ravens we have here in the deserts of California in the US. I do similar rescue and rehab work... mostly reptiles, though I have a strong love for birds as well, and have helped many through the worst winters. Just read every page on Tarquin and his lovely family. Wanting you to know how it touches my heart to hear of others being so compassionate to our animal companions - wild or domestic. It is a rare find, unfortunately, but it is encouraging to know, even if the minority, people like this do exist. Continue on and God bless your mission. The ravens who frequent my property are such a delight. I can understand how you could become so dedicated so quickly. Wishing you and your birds all the health and success!
Posted by Mark and Lisa on February 01, 2009 - 1:29 am
hi Steve and Shelly
Great site,just thought i would introduce us, we run a very small corvid sanctusry in wolverhampton, we have only 3 resident birds at the moment.2rooks and a carrion crow.all the very best in corvids mark
Posted by Jim Hughes on January 27, 2009 - 8:59 pm
I've been interested in Raven's since seeing their airial dispaly's on Holyhead Mountain, Anglesey....my son and I were fascinated with the way one in particular would launch from a cliff and then drop, inverted, for several feet, caw loudly and do it again repeatedly.
My son asked "why?"
I just said "'Cos they can and obviously enjoy it"!!
Tarquins story is wonderful and inspiring...you should consider a book.....and sincerely wish you well for the future. Living in Cambridge our largest are the Carrion's....I liken them to mini ravens and as there are a few localy have found them quite ...wow....!! And very inteligent - more so than some of the local teenagers....ahem!!
Take care and the VERY best of luck,
Posted by Malcolm on January 23, 2009 - 12:57 am
Thanks so much for a great day. Being in such close contact with those guys really is quite magical. Really hope we get up to see you again soon.
Posted by Janine Gray on January 23, 2009 - 12:02 am
Thanks so much for a brilliant time today - I'm still a bit speechless that I have had this opportunity to have such close contact! Your love and hard work is obvious to all in the fantastic condition of your birds and the special relationship you have with them.

Hi ya folks, thought I'd leave a good luck message, GOOD LUCK wow how things grow on you, I'd miss ravens in my life now, cheers for that and all you've tault me about them,even if that means being bullied by Mystic,thanks Steve and Shelley, wicked life experience xx

Really enjoyed reading about your corvid work. Growing up in Canada, ravens were a normal winter sight - loved seeing them tease dogs! I miss seeing them now that I am down in Bournemouth, but I will check out your site again when I need a top up!
Posted by Fiona Lloyd on November 05, 2008 - 12:03 pm
Hi, Do you ever allow visits? I live in Cardiff but I would sincerly love to see the birds close up.
Posted by Ashleigh Mullen and my Dad Andy on November 04, 2008 - 8:36 pm
What an amazing project. It must be an experience living amongst all those interesting birds! I couldn't believe it when my teacher at South Ascot Village School (Mrs Hill) said she lived with them. My Dad was really interested and then I told him it was also going to be on Autumnwatch. We both thought it was great. The birds looked so intelligent as they seemed trained.
Posted by Nick in Fordingbridge on November 04, 2008 - 3:10 pm
Great to see someone helping the image of and raising Ravens, one of the most interesting birds in the world. We have just a few around the New Forest area, but nothing like the number that should be around. I fell in love with Corvids as a lad, helping a couple to health in 1976 and 1985 (rooks)- a black headed gull too ! Let us know when you start doing displays, etc
Keep up your great work
Posted by Year Six South Ascot on November 04, 2008 - 2:54 pm
We all enjoyed watching your collection on autumnwatch last night. We all just can't quite beleive that you spend £600 a month! At school we will be reading Tarquins story. Mrs Hill told us about the magpie that was on Shelley's chest all night!

Great feature on Autumnwatch last night and wonderful to see ravens again - my favourite bird. Straight on the website this morning for a good look. Keep up the good work - I will be in touch again.
Posted by Marcus Rheade-Edwards on November 04, 2008 - 1:29 am
What a fantastic place you have there, and I'd like to thank you on beahlf of the many fantastic birds that you have rescued and look after. Marvalous birds like the Raven and other members of te Crow family need establishments like yours to help raise their profile and educate people about their many great qualities.Enjoyed seeing you on Autumnwatch.All the very best guys.
Posted by Sue Mintram-Mason on November 04, 2008 - 12:03 pm
Superb feature on Autumnwatch, I have dealt with crows for over 30 years now so was much encouraged by your work, congratulations. I have a one eyed crow who is now 27 years old and recently lost my old Rook at well over 30!!
Posted by Jane on September 12, 2011 - 02:42 pm
I too saw you on Autumnwatch - Mystic is truly a beautiful bird and a wonderful ambassador. I wish you all the best in your work.
Posted by Michael Argyrou on September 12, 2008 - 12:03 pm
Really enjoyed the Autumnwatch item. Had no idea a place like yours existed in England, something I always dreamed of doing myself. Was looking at volunteering in Austria just to be near ravens again.
Hopefully you take in 'mature' volunteers? The website is of great interest to me. Thanks for all the great work you've done and continue to do.
Posted by Lady Lintu on November 03, 2008 - 11:36 pm
I saw a feature on the BBC Autumnwatch tonight and it immediately caught my attention since I adore ravens. If there's any way I could visit and/or help you I will! You are doing a fantastic job and I hope Raven Haven continues to thrive.
My plush raven Bran and I salute you!
Posted by Helen White on November 03, 2008 - 12:18 am
Well done guys! A fantastic story, and very well written up. I feel privilaged to be a little part of it, and I feel happy to know there are all those birds who have benefited from your hard work over the years. Don't give up on a fantastic talent you have!

Good work! Always nice to see someone putting themselves out for the Corvid family. Most people cant understand what all the fuss is about,especially when your not getting paid for doing it.
I do a similar thing for Eurasian Jays. Though many different birds pass through my hands. Corvids have a special appeal that most people in their world of material gain would never understand. I take my hat off to you. good luck!

Hi guys. Well, i've just spent the last few hours reading everything on your website - i got so engrossed with Tarquin's story i had to read it all in one go! It's great to have met some of the family and relate to some of the stories as i remember them! I feel privilaged to have been around for some of it as otherwise i would never have been given the opportunity of seeing how majestic these birds truly are - thank you. I think you do a great job and look forward to reading future stories.

Just came across your website via a member on Crows@yahoogroups.com I also came across Corvid Aid last week, I didn't know there were any actual corvid rescue places in the UK, so I am delighted! I rehab birds (most species except birds of prey and water/sea birds) in South Devon. I adore corvids and jackdaws are my favourite bird, I have had long term corvids but like most rehabbers lack space ( I only have a small garden with 2 small aviaries and a insulated shed for baby and sickly birds. I am sometimes looking for homes for disabled corvids, I guess you probably lack space too though?!
Anyway, good to meet you, do come and join Crows group if you like,and my bird hospital my space is here www.myspace.com/birdhospital
Keep up the good work!
Hearty caws!

Love your web site. Thank you for your help with the advice on our injured Jackdaw. We are looking after him until his new feathers come and he seems very happy in his safehouse! We will send you some pictures via e-mail soon and let you know how he gets on. Thanks again and keep up the amazing work at Raven Haven. Chris & Mel X

I just found your site & I love it. It is truly an amazing experience to be in the company of a Raven (or Crow), they are the most intelligent birds & a constant source of wonderment. It's nice to see that you have such a love for these wonderful souls, keep up the great work.

I think what you do is wonderful, I take in injured crows, magpies and other corvids, it is so rewarding to help then return to full health and then that moment you re release them, when you can is such an awe inspiring moment

It was very interesting to read the story of how you found Tarquin. We also love the cute pictures of the baby and adult ravens. We also like the fact that you save injured birds.
