Description

Discover what owls like to eat by investigating barn owl pellets!

Pull the pellets apart and see what you can find inside, match the bones you find in the pellets to our charts to learn what tasty snacks the owl has eaten!

Owl pellets are formed when owls cough up the bits of food they can’t digest – such as hair and bone. Many kinds of birds produce pellets including birds of prey, crows and even sparrows. The appearance of the pellet depends on what the bird eats.

These informative and educational sessions take place from 1st - 25th May, and are a continuation of the self-led activities at Crickley Hill café. They will be available whilst the café is open from 8am - 6pm, where there will be an instruction sheet for you to follow.
