Last Thursday the Pre-Prep had some very special visitors! Mark from Peak Falconry brought IMG_0076some of his birds to Smallwood. I had asked him to bring owls especially a barn owl. On the day I was pleased to hear that Bertie, the barn owl, was in a good mood and so was able to come! Apparently owls have moods just like people!

As well as Bertie, we were able to meet a milky eagle owl, a little owl and a gyr saker falcon. All the birds were wonderful and the children and staff were entranced. Mark was a fountain of information and the children were very good at asking and answering questions.

IMG_0083It was a great afternoon. Have you seen the children’s writing and artwork on owls?
