Owls hold a great fascination for many of us. They are amazing birds, since they can hunt at speed with great precision in the dark - and an owl experience will give you the chance to get close up to these wonderful creatures & to find out more about them.
There are opportunities to get to know these amazing creatures better and there are plenty of experience days you can treat a bird lover to - some are specifically with owls, while others include owls and other birds.
Owl experiences make great gifts for bird lovers, animal lovers or anyone who wants to get closer to nature and discover more about these beautiful birds. Please read the T&Cs, key info/need to know notes before you buy.
