Whitby Animal Sanctuary just rescued 1,383 hens and they need your help

Robyn, who I spend like a million hours walking dogs with on the regular, volunteers for the Whitby Wild Sanctuary and a few nights ago assisted the sanctuary in the rescue of 1,383 hens. They started at 10pm and worked through until 5am.

The sanctuary are trying to re-home as many as they can, and the amount of food they’re going to be needing over the next few weeks has obviously gone up considerably, so if you’re able to help them out with a donation then please get in touch right here and follow the instructions.

Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary-55

I spent a day volunteering with Robyn back in October and I took my camera along to document it. We watered and fed all the animals while other volunteers took care of other duties around the site.

Annoyingly I hadn’t gotten around to sharing photos from the day but as the Sanctuary needs your help right now this is probably a good a time as any for me to do that and show you just some of the injured/abandoned animals they care for.

Saltwick Bay with Robyn

Before I buggered off to Glasgow, I headed to Robyns and we drove out to Saltwick Bay for a walk along the beach with the dogs.

Recently, part of the cliffs collapsed and crushed a 9 year old girl. So a lot of it had changed since the last time I was there. Perhaps because we’re stupid we got maybe a little too close to the cliffs as they were still very much crumbling around us, but Robyn did find some cool fossils though.

The tide was starting to come in by the time we arrived, and it got dark quick. So here’s a few photos from the day.

Nudes in Raincliffe Woods with Chloe

I’ve got a lot to write about and feel like not enough time to write about it. I’m moving to Glasgow tomorrow, so I’m gonna try and get a bunch of shit written on the train up.

So I’m gonna post this up real quick to get things going.

When I realised I was gonna be moving to Glasgow I put out a shout for anyone who wanted their photo taken by me to get in touch before I left. Chloe was one of these people and we managed to make it work.

We’ve been friends online for… I dunno, ages? And we’ve hung out a couple of times. I’ve wanted to photograph Chloe for a long while, so I’m glad it finally happened. We met, had a brew, then fucked off into the woods for those autumnal colours… and lack of humans.

Dalby Forest.

I haven’t actively been out to take photos since Wales and yesterday was the first time I actually felt like picking up my camera since then. I found a double that I forgot I had laying around of the lens I threw in the sea, so that was a nice surprise, but my 18 f2 is still missing…

I headed to meet Robyn and the dogs with the 35.

Robyn, Dalby-1

It was pissing it down when I set off, but the sun came out in full force by the time we were walking.

I took a bunch of photos and only got a handful that are passable for the blog, but I’m not gonna dwell on that because at least I’m getting out again.

Boggle Hole & Flamborough Head

I was due to head out with Debby for the day to go exploring some woodland but our plans were altered slightly as she’d gotten an injured baby pigeon and that we were gonna have to take it to the Whitby Wildlife Sanctuary.

I’d never seen a baby pigeon before. And for some reason I didn’t take a photo of it, but rest assured they don’t look very pigeon like at all and just look a bit… odd.

After a little mix up with the address (Google lists the location as some blokes house near by, and he’s kinda pissed about people taking dead Hedgehogs his way expecting him to bring them back to life) we headed back and called at Boggle Hole!
