It’s hard to believe that it’s a whole year since this treasure trove of official Harry Potter merch opened at Longton Exchange!
To celebrate, we’re welcoming Falconry UK back to the centre for one day only on 2nd October.
They have an extensive range of Birds of Prey including Vultures, Eagles, Falcons, Hawks, Kites & Owls – some of these magnificent birds are on the endangered species list so we’d love it if you could donate £1 towards their upkeep.
This promises to be an educational day and you’ll have chance to meet the keepers as well as the birds! Take pics and ask questions to get the most out of your visit – don’t forget to share your pics on our Facebook page and tell us your favourite!
Did you know that you can also Sponsor a Bird with Falconry UK? Sponsorship helps with feeding and care costs and you’ll receive a Certificate and regular emails including photographs & video updates on your new feathered friend.
Find out more here – https://falconry-uk.org/sponsor-our-birds.html
Plus! Get 10% off all full-priced purchases at Potteries Potions on the day!
2nd October, 10am – 5pm, Longton Exchange.
Fun Owl Facts for Kids
- There are around 200 different owl species.
- Owls are active at night (nocturnal).
- A group of owls is called a parliament.
- Most owls hunt insects, small mammals and other birds.
- Some owl species hunt fish.
- Owls have powerful talons (claws) which help them catch and kill prey.
- Many owl species have asymmetrical ears. When located at different heights on the owl’s head, their ears are able to pinpoint the location of sounds in multiple dimensions. Ready, aim, strike.
- The eyes of an owl are not true “eyeballs.” Their tube-shaped eyes are completely immobile, providing binocular vision which fully focuses on their prey and boosts depth perception.
- Barn Owls swallow their prey whole—skin, bones, and all—and they eat up to 1,000 mice each year.
