Dissect Barn Owl pellets to find out what small mammals have been on the menu. Was it two mice, a shrew, a Bank Vole perhaps? Discover how skulls, jawbones and other tiny body parts can offer clues. (Don’t worry – an owl pellet isn’t poo! They are balls of undigested material regurgitated from its beak).

Part of a series of events and activities on the Yorkshire Coast to mark the Mammal Society’s National Mammal Week, 21 – 29 October.

Free Event. No need to book.
