A plea goes out to help secure the future of a Cornish animal sanctuary.

Screech Owl Sanctuary at Indian Queens is run solely on donations.

But the recession has meant a drop in cash.

Changes to rules on who looks after sick and injured birds have also led to a jump in admissions.

Owner Carolyn Screech: It is a very worrying time really, you know, we all strive hard to do everything we can to make ends meet here. But during the winter is a particularly difficult time for us, you know, if we could have the summer season right the way through, we'd be quite happy."

"During the winter it's a very quiet time, nothing much happening at all. But our work still goes on, we still have to provide the staff to look after the owls. We still have the same costs, so that's the difficulty for us."
