Newsletter NL166 – Friday 14th July 2023

Editor - Derek Godridge and the team:

PCC Social News this week:

Members had a great day out at Screech Owl Sanctuary last weekend where Karen had arranged a designated “Meet the Owls” for us to get up and personal.

Screech Owl Sanctuary 1

We all then toddled off to the main ring where a free-flying display was in progress and we all desperately tried to capture some decent flight pictures without a busy background. It’s not easy because the Owls mainly fly close to the ground in order to be able to hear the creatures they hunt. We were told that a barn owl can hear the heartbeat of a vole whilst in flight - Spot the owl ! Loads more photos on our Facebook page.

  • Just a NOTE regarding the Key Tags that I handed out with the Pen Drives last Monday. I stupidly attached the Tags to the Drives, but you will need to take them off to enable you to slide the name card insert out in order to write your PCC Club number down!
