ImageHalf term will be here before we know it and if you’re looking for a hoot, we’ve got just the thing. From barn and tawny to long-eared and little, The RSPB and Sharandys Birds of Prey, will be bringing a variety of owls to each of our garden centres during the February half term. This free event will run from 10am – 4pm, and gardeners of all ages will get the chance to meet the round-faced birds of prey, finding out about their mostly nocturnal lives, how they feed and their importance to our countryside. What’s more, there will be lots of activities including making an owl out of a pine cone, owl masks and listen to wise tales at story time.
