Barn Owls arrive at Cornwall
We have received our fifth set of owls which will be kept for approximately four weeks. During this time they will be kept in a hacking cage on the lawn outside C1 and C2. Their daily feeding and general care will be carried out by the children of the Preparatory School Eco Club. This programme aims to release owls which have been rescued and rehabilitated into a safe poison free environment, while at the same time educating our school community about owls. Over the course of the last six years we have successfully released nine owls onto our school property. This set of owls are Barn Owls and have been named Twilight and Midnight by the Eco Club members. As owls are nocturnal and rather shy, they may be a little reclusive, as they spend a great deal of time during the day in the roosting box. To see them at their best make a visit in the early evening when they become active and start flying around. Please note that there is no water in their cage as owls do not drink water.
