Owl Pellet Dissection for adults


Join us to dissect an owl pellet at the Wildlife Trust Countryside Centre in Ramsey Heights. Pellets have been retrieved from the Great Fen and you will discover which species our local owls have been hunting! Our conservation team uses this data understand the small mammal population and health of our birds of prey. We will carefully break up the pellet, clean and compile the skeletons inside and identify which species they belong to. Make use of our digital microscope and photo lenses which attach to your smart phone.

All materials will be provided for you. We will be working in a small group inside our classroom. After the pellet investigation, we will take you on a guided walk around the Ramsey Heights nature reserve to identify more of the flora and fauna that call this home. Refreshments will be included.
