Following on from reports of Reindeer in St Oswalds Church before Christmas, visitors and members who were attending the March meeting of the Malpas Field Club witnessed a ghostly white owl flying through the High Street Church.
No this was not another Vicar of Dibley animal church service, but Nanette Hudson from the Vale Royal Falconry giving a talk on British Birds of Prey.
An informative one and one half hour long session, gave members and visitors the opportunity of getting up close and personal with four different species of Owls.
These included a Tawny Owl, a Little Owl, and a female Barn Owl called Misty,
Finally the star of the show was a huge male Eagle Owl named Dennis, who was so tame that he would let people cuddle him and warm their hands under his wings.
