Bird of Prey Day

Bird of Prey Day


Festival Park Owl Sanctuary are bringing a group of feathered friends for us to meet at Newport Wetlands, with a variety of owls, hawks and falcons that have been rescued and are unable to return to the wild. We will get to see them up close as they tell us all about these amazing birds, and how we can help protect them. This will be followed by some bird of prey arts and crafts activities with the staff at Newport Wetlands.

Booking essential - Call 01633 636363.
