Today I visited 7 year old Louie and 5 year old Jamie, two brothers having a shared birthday party! As a surprise their mum had organised Freddie the owl to come.
Being an encounter solely based on owls, we had some time to talk about lots of interesting owl facts including their excellent hearing, their flexible neck, their main weapons and the food they like to eat. Not only did the children learn something new, but the adults too who were just as interested!
After this we had time for the birthday boys to hold Freddie the owl on their fist, providing them with an unforgettable close up encounter with one of Britain's apex predators. Their birthdays guests also had a turn, both children and adults.
Thank you so much for having us, and happy birthday to Louie and Jamie.
