DERBYSHIREWILDLIFE TRUST(Wye and Upper derwent group)“Barn Owls”

Monday 16th January 2023

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.
