Mere Down Falconry visited with their barn, tawny, little and African spotted eagle owls today. We got up close to these magnificent creatures and sat silently as they flew over our heads. Mr Gates also brought his kestrel called 'Mere.' We learnt about the colour of their eyes and how we can use this to determine if they are nocturnal. It was most exciting when Darcy the eagle owl sat on the bench with Ducklings class; I think she wanted to join us!
