15/10/2017 Field Trip to Screech Owl Sanctuary

A group of members went on Sunday morning to the Screech Owl Sanctuary where we had one of their staff bring out owls one at a time for us to be able to photograph while being flown and handled. Paula, who was our handler for the morning, was extremely helpful and suggested certain owls that may be more accommodating than others to photograph, which proved a lot more difficult than we imagined trying to photograph them in flight.

Following this we all went to the Plume of Feathers in Mitchell for a great lunch, together with pudding for some of us!
