What a fantastic morning we have had at Foxhills Country Club & Resort! We were invited to do an owl talk and handling session for their Summer Camp.
The children had been discussing habitats, doing species ID and had been on a woodland walk prior to our arrival with Freddie the tawny owl. This gave a great setup for our talk all about owls and their adaptations, tawny owls as a species and how we can help owls by preventing secondary poisoning caused by rodenticides and slug pellets. We also talked about how we can make our gardens wildlife friendly to attract more prey species in order to support a healthy food chain for our native predators.
This was finished off with a bit of owl handling since the children were so well behaved and respectful. Freddie the owl was very comfortable and perfectly behaved as always!
