Back by popular demand, Sharandys Birds of Prey will return to Brimsmore Gardens, Poundbury Gardens and Castle Gardens this half-term with a parliament of owls. Amongst these magnificent birds of prey will be Barney, the European Eagle Owl, Bracken, the Tawny and Breeze the Barn Owl. Gardeners of all ages will have the chance to hold these mysterious round-faced creatures throughout this free family event.
Owl Day dates at The Gardens Group from 10am – 4pm
Monday 16 February at Brimsmore Gardens, Yeovil
Tuesday 17 February at Poundbury Gardens, Dorchester
Wednesday 18 February at Castle Gardens, Sherborne
Mike Burks, managing director of The Gardens Group, explains; “Owls are fascinating, they are mainly nocturnal, which means we don’t always have a chance to see them in the wild so we are delighted to be welcoming Sharandys Birds of Prey back. It is a great chance for everyone to get up close and personal with the owls and learn about what they eat, how they hunt and how significant they are to our countryside.”
