This term, Year 3 have been reading ‘The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark’, by Jill Tomlinson in their English lessons and so a visit to the Gauntlet Bird of Prey Park near Knutsford seemed very appropriate. 

The girls were given a tour of the aviaries and introduced to a wide variety of birds ranging from owls to eagles. 

The girls learnt about the important conservation work undertaken by the centre and were given some amazing flying displays. 

They were lucky enough to each hold a little owl on a gauntlet. The highlight of the day for us all, though, was having the opportunity to stroke two beautiful baby barn owls who looked just like ‘Plop’!
