Family Fun activities are for you and your family to experience the magic of the woodland at Forestry England’s Leigh Woods together.
Friday 2nd October 2020 – 6.15pm for a 6.30pm start
Getting out on an autumn night for a walk in the woods, listening to owls, is a magical experience! Come and learn about British owls with owl specialist Ian McGuire through his iPad presentations, knowledge and experience and as he calls for a tawny owl response. If we’re really lucky, one might just fly into view too! Find out about our amazing UK owl population, what they eat, how they fly and what are owl pellets??!
Although tawny owls are Britain’s most common owl, and many people know its toowhit toowoo call, they are in a slow but steady decline, especially in the South West. Despite this, Leigh Woods is perfect habitat for them and we know they are faring well here.
Cost: £10.00 adult, £32.00 family, child (7+) £7.50 Book Here
No captive owls are used at this event.“My son absolutely loved the Owl Prowl at Leigh Woods in January. So much so that when asked to do a presentation to his class he chose Owls (he could have chosen any topic). It was amazing how much he remembered from the talk. He wrote knowledgeably about lots of aspects but his favourite by far was owl pellets and how they are made. Typical boy who loves icky things!” JD, Bristol

Disabled access: The area we use is flat but uneven in places. Disabled toilet facilities with a ramp are available.
