Owl Update

Do you remember our three owl chicks we reared earlier this year? Well these ugly little balls of fluff have now grown and matured in to these beautiful owls! This past week they all took part in their first photo shoots, and all did exceptionally well, so will be rotated with the rest of our educational team on future owl photographic days.

They are also all now fully graduated members of our flying team, and will be taking their turns in our afternoon displays when open to the public. Well done owls!

And well done keepers for doing such a great job rearing them. Clare reared the owl with no name (Arya) the tawny owl above. Izzy reared (Owl) Pacino the little owl below, and Millie reared Kate (Wingslet) the long eared owl at the bottom of the post. Don't worry, it will be the last time we let Millie name anything :-)

You can catch our owl display as the last talk at the end of each open day, and occasionally they can be seen out and about during the day with one of our keepers.
