Owl Encounter at Falcon Days
A nice Football Experience near Hexham, Northumberland.
Owls are truly beautiful creatures that have impressive hunting techniques to match their fantastic plume of feathers. This session is a great hands-on opportunity to learn about the native British species including the Tawny, Long Eared, Short Eared, Snowy, Little and Barn Owls. Under the guidance of an expert, meet owls at the sanctuary that have been rescued, as well as a Vermiculated Eagle Owl from Africa. Learn why these beautiful creatures have such soft feathers and large eyes, see them flying free and get involved first-hand. There are plenty of photo opportunities if you have a camera and the session includes refreshments in the form of tea and coffee.
Runs daily throughout the year.
