Owl Encounter in Bedfordshire
Meet the owls of Bedfordshire at this special owling experience near Biggleswade. Upon arrival, meet the expert falconer and have a chat over coffee about the birds before taking a short tour of the centre to see the different species. There are plenty of opportunities for questions and photographs as you walk through Owl Wood and visit the free flying barn owls. Then it's time to start handling the owls - meet the Little owl, the Barn owl, a Long Eared and Short Eared owl, Tawny owl and the Snowy owl.
