Owl Pellet Analysis

Join the Hawk and Owl Trust for a short course in how to analyse barn owl pellets.

Shapwick Moor Nature Reserve is a haven for birds of prey. We manage the meadows here to promote populations of field vole, the favoured prey of barn owls. In this workshop we will be learning about the owls, their pellets and prey. We will then have a go at dissecting pellets and identifying the bones and skulls found inside them.

This workshop is suitable to anyone aged 12 and over (under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult guardian who will also have to book a place).
