All about Owls

Hare Hill National Trust are running a special Hallowe'en event for you to get up close and personal with owls, and explore the myths and legends surrounding them. A special weekend of fun, facts and flying. Join them on 28 and 29 October for a Hallowe'en Hoot!

The star attraction on Saturday and Sunday is The Feathery Folk, a small family-run bird of prey business, based in Congleton, Cheshire. "We work constantly to share our enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, these amazing birds using interactive, hands-on encounters." The Feathery Folk stand will be based in the walled garden, where you can see a display of live owls and other birds of prey, learn about owl pellets, and take part in interactive games and quizzes — with a chance to win a goody bag! The centrepiece of the show will be the flying demonstrations at 11.30 and 1.30 pm.

The Mid Cheshire Barn Owl Conservation Group will also be on hand to tell you about their work, and their role in reversing the decline of this popular but endangered bird.

There will be plenty of other activities to enjoy, including candle-rolling, mask-making and face-painting. Keep warm beside a swedish candle while the Rangers show off their woodworking skills. Listen to owl-themed stories at 11 am and 1pm. Plus a very special trail to follow...
