xx Owl pellet analysis workshop, Margrove. Thursday 6 September 2018

August 16, 2018, 09:02:46 am by David Minter
Leader. Organized by the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust. Location. Margrove Heritage Centre, Margrove Park [postcode TS123BZ]. Date. 6 September 2018. Time. 10.00-15:30. Notes. Club Members welcome. Booking is essential. Join Kenny Crooks, Mammal Officer, for an opportunity to learn how to dissect barn owl pellets. Owl pellets are the indigestible remains of the owl's food, which have been regurgitated. The pellets have all been collected in East Cleveland, so will provide us with lots of information about our small mammals and the regional barn owl diet. In this workshop, you will get the chance to learn a little about barn owls, have a go at dissecting pellets and identifying any remains that you find. No previous experience or knowledge is required. Attendees are asked to help with on-going barn owl pellet analysis as part of the Barn Owl Nest Box Network project. The event is free but lunch is not provided. Please bring a packed lunch. Places are limited (max. 10). The Nest Box Network Project is supported by funding from Northumbrian Water’s Branch Out Scheme and National Lottery players through the Heritage Lottery Fund. Contact. Kenny Crooks [info@teeswildlife.org - Tel.: 01287 636382].
