An illustrated talk by Beverley Rhodes at Darley Dale Methodist Church Hall, Dale Road North, Darley Dale, Matlock DE4 2FT – Admission £3
With heart-shaped face, buff back and wings and pure white underparts, the barn owl is a distinctive and much-loved countryside bird.
It is the most widely distributed species of owl in Britain and in the world, but because it hunts mostly at night, most people’s view of a barn owl is often limited to a brief glimpse in their car’s headlights.
Beverley will bring a barn owl to the meeting and will talk about it’s unique behaviour, habitat, breeding and hunting technique.
