Winter Owls at Woods Mill - Henfield (05/12/19) Thursday, 5th December 2019 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Leader: James Duncan
Join us as we set out to explore Woods Mill in winter, observing and identifying the resident and over-wintering birds that inhabit the reserve, whilst keeping our eyes peeled for other signs of life in this most demanding of seasons. This is a great time of year to observe owls on the hunt. Owls are fascinating in both their ecology and mythology, revered by the ancient Greeks as a symbol of wisdom, feared by the Romans who saw them as harbingers of death. We'll look to try and observe this magnificent avian predator, whilst learning more about their captivating lives. Our afternoon walk will take us through Woods Mills’ ancient woodland, following its streams and waterways towards the River Adur.
