Pugneys Country Park is a great place for a day out especially when the weather is good.
This afternoon we will be taking the birds up there as there are always plenty people. We have an arrangement with the park that we can set up there any weekend, so if we don’t have any shows booked we often go up there.
If you haven’t been, it really is a lovely place to spend the day. There are water sports on the lake, a miniature train and if you fancy a walk you can go up to Sandal Castle. There’s plenty space for the kids to tire themselves out, and that’s always good!
Alex Wilkinson of Wilkinson Photography took this smashing shot of Orville. I’d like to thank him for letting me show you it.
Don’t stare at the eyes too long!

It’s always so rewarding to get lovely feedback like this:
” It was just what I wanted and the childrens’ reactions were amazing. As the year come to a close the children have been talking and writing about what they have enjoyed this year, your visit features at the top of most of their lists. The group of children that were so enthusiastic about birds of prey got a lot from your visit and I think you noticed that three of them would not go back to class! It made their day.
The reason that I have waited so long to contact you is that I now have permission from parents for you published the attached photos on your website. “
It’s even nicer to be allowed to show you some of the photos that have been taken. You can see how much the children are enjoying themselves.
We do get a lot of positive feedback from all the people who have enjoyed our displays,
but this one from Sue is one of the nicest we have had.
Thank you very much and I hope we can be of service to you again.
“Not only were the Wise Owl team
professional,entertaining and talented !
But so were the humans that came with them!
A wonderful experience not to be missed.”
The Phoenix School in Keighley runs a holiday play scheme for disabled children which gives them a wide range of experiences.
Most of their children are disabled and come to the scheme with their parents and siblings.
We have had some great times with the children who seem to love seeing and handing the birds.
I am really pleased that we have been asked to go back and do some more events for them.
Birds Of Prey Swoop In.
Always nice to get a good write up in the local press.

After doing 4 x 1 hour educational exhibitions at Knottingley junior school on my own, I was shattered. I took 4 owls and a male harris hawk. Did a flying display for each class and every child held one or more birds. I used a teacher as a “volunteer” to help with flying display.
The children and staff loved it, and to show their appreciation they made me this wonderful card to say thank you.
I just wish to say thank you to all children and staff for a fantastic day and a wonderful card.
We are proud to announce that Wise Owl will be attending Brockholes Carnival on Sat 6 July 1pm- 5pm.
We will be holding a flying display and a static display as well.
What a terrible headline, but it’s nice to make the newspapers!
