Meet the Owls

Joe’s Owl Encounters and Mobile Zoo will be running a family friendly event here in the garden on the Wednesday 17th August. To make the most of the event we will be opening from 10:00, so there will be plenty of time to enjoy the birds and the rest of the garden.

We are really looking forward to meeting the owls and we know this will be an excellent chance for owl enthusiasts of all ages to have a close encounter with an owl.

Family Friendly Event

Head falconer, Joe, tells us he will be bringing 7 birds and owlets, including a snowy owlet. There will also be a barn owl, tawny owl, kestrel, burrowing owl and a selection of eagle owls. Children will be encouraged to learn about the birds and there will be photo opportunities.

Joe’s Owl Encounters encourage people to interact with the birds at events around the county. They also carry out practical conservation and educational work, advising farmers and landowners on how to encourage owls.

They provide nest boxes for Barn Owls that have lost their homes due to barn renovations and provide  Tawny Owls with  safe nest boxes in woods and farmland. They also look after sick and injured owls brought in by the public or handed over to us by our local vets.
If you want a photograph taken with one of the birds, there will be a charge which will go to support the conservation and rescue projects.
Entry to the event is included in our regular admission fee of £5  (£1 for under 16s and free for under 5s)
