Excellent Owl Prowl at Wapley Bushes! (Monday 28 October)

We had a great owl prowl at Wapley Bushes this evening with Ian McGuire. We saw three tawny owls near the Lower Path, one on its own and a pair. One sat on a branch 20 feet up calling to us, and we also saw them in flight. Thanks for a great event, Ian!

Rather soggy but happy nevertheless
- Ian McGuire, his tame owl and the owl prowlers.
The owl prowl was part of South Gloucestershire Council's Discover Festival. If you missed the Wapley prowl, there's another one tomorrow (Tuesday 29 October) at Ridge Woods. Meet 7 pm at the Quarry Road entrance. Please wear warm clothes and boots, and bring a torch.

Ian is also running owl prowls on Wednesday at Willsbridge Mill, and on Friday at Coniston Community Centre, Patchway, with a 7 pm start in each case.
