Owl Visitors

February 20th, 2015

On the 19th February, we had two Beautiful Owls come visit from the New Forest Owl Studio. Meet Twany Owl (Beebo – Left) and Black Barn Owl (Nibbly – Right).

‘Beebo’ became friends with our eldest resident in an instant! However, come home time, ‘Beebo’ didn’t want to leave her side. The immediate bond was amazing to see.
