An animal charity which looks after dozens of birds of prey hosted an open day at the weekend, which was enjoyed by a healthy crowd.
Avon Owls, in Banwell, opened its doors on Sunday as guests got up close and personal with a range of creatures.
The sanctuary rescues and rehabilitates former pets, abused animals, injured wild birds and abandoned chicks in hope of finding them a new home or safely releasing them into the wild.
Youngsters enjoyed learning about the birds from the charity’s team of expert handlers before posing for pictures.
The organisation is run entirely by volunteers and the event helped the charity raise vital funds, as it continues its efforts to acquire a new, larger base for the sanctuary.
The charity, in Whitely Head, will host its next open day on October 28 from 10am-6pm.
