Little Owls: A talk SOLD OUT

Tuesday 20th February 2018 - 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Location: Volunteer Training Centre

Address: Oakham Road


The enigmatic Little Owl is a species that often delights when encountered, often in the day peering from a cavity in a tree stump. Rick Pegler has been observing, photographing, and monitoring Little Owls since 2009.This talk is the perfect opportunity to learn more about this species.

This well-illustrated talk describes the lives, trials and tribulations of these delightful birds, and introduces the field craft for finding and observing them, including tips on how to photograph them without disturbance. There will be a mid-session diversion into some of the other owls that can be found in the VC55 recording area (which includes Rutland!)

If you would like to attend this talk you must book a seat as space is limited. If you have any questions, email Sarah Proud on or call on 01572 720049. Tea and Coffee will be provided, and there will be a comfort break half way through.

The event takes place at the Volunteer Training Centre, not usually open to the public, on the shore of Lagoon 4. For directions on how to find us, click here.

This event is fully booked.
