Owl Encounters

In this post Harry Potter world it is hard to not have developed more of an interest in owls. As the witching hour draws near why not find out more about how to enjoy a Halloween encounter with owls? Could be a perfect St Albans or Harpenden half term activity.
From Saturday 21st October 2017 to Sunday 29th October 2017at Herring Green Activity Farm & Birds of Prey Centre, Cotton End Road, Wilstead, MK45 3DT there is a great opportunity to get closer to these magical birds and find out more about them.

The owl encounter activity lasts approximately two hours, and runs running daily, all you have to do is choose between the 11.00am or 2.00pm time slots. In the encounters you get the chance to meet and even handle different species of owls.  There is also pumpkin carving for the children and you can of course enjoy a glass of witches brew and a creepy cupcake.
The English School of Falconry is based at Herring Green Farm and their Display Team offer unforgettable displays for Country Shows, Fêtes, Family Days, around the country so you may have come across them at events. But they have a large static display of a variety of birds including different species of Owls, Hawks, Eagles and Falcons.
For the owl encounter event children’s tickets cost £13.00 and adult £9.00.  The ticket price includes admission into the activity farm & bird of prey centre. Perfect opportunity to take some of your magic little people on an adventure.
