This series of wildlife Walks & Talks takes place at the Forestry Commission’s Leigh Woods site. They are suitable for adults or students (and sometimes older children) with a keen interest in the natural world.
Owl Prowl with Ian McGuire
Friday 11th January 2019, 6.45pm (for 7pm start)- 8.45pm
Getting out on a winter’s night for a walk in the woods, listening to owls, is a magical experience! Come and learn about British owls with Ian McGuire, British owl specialist, photographer and film-maker, as he calls for tawny owls and through his iPad video presentations. If we’re really lucky, one might just fly into view too! Find out how amazing owls are and what they need to survive in the wild.
Although tawny owls are Britain’s most common owl, and many people know its toowhit, twowoo call, they are in a slow but steady decline, especially in the South West.
Despite that, Leigh Woods is perfect habitat for them and we know they are faring well there.
Enjoy a hot drink at our Green Wood Barn at the end of the walk!
Please note: This event is weather-dependent and for safety reasons we will not be able to continue in very heavy rain or high winds. No captive owls are used at this event.
