Barn Owl visiting Severn Valley Country Park (21st November 2017)

Barn Owl visiting Severn Valley Country Park

Shropshire Council rangers at Severn Valley Country Park are delighted to be welcoming the chairman of World Owl Trust for an evening talk held in the visitor centre. Alan Peace will be giving an illustrated talk examining the plight of the barn owl. This beautiful bird is the most endangered owl in the UK.

The World Owl Trust (WOT) runs conservation programmes both nationally and internationally which help protect populations of endangered owls. WOT look at the environmental problems which impact the habitats favoured by owls as well as impacts to food sources. WOT are working hard to restore such habitats and have had success with increasing numbers of European Eagle Owl as well as the Barn Owl.

The Trust is a registered charity and it relies on donations received as well as the work of volunteers.

Accompanying Mr Peace will be Barny the Barn Owl and, hopefully, Indie the Long Eared Owl.

Visitor centre manager, Susie Comaish said, ‘Currently we are looking to fund a barn owl tower which will help attract these beautiful birds to the park. This will be a fascinating talk about the work of the World Owl Trust and we hope our visitors will enjoy it.’

The talk will be held in the visitor centre on Thursday 7th December 2017. 7.30pm-9pm. Tickets are £3.00 adults, £2.00 children. Price includes hot drink and biscuits.
