Animal enthusiasts turned out in numbers at the weekend to get up close and personal with a range of cute creatures.
Avon Owls, in Banwell, hosted an open day on Sunday, with a sizeable crowd enjoying learning about the centre’s birds of prey.
The star attractions at the open day were a pair of new additions – spectacled owls named Mokka and Cream.
Expert volunteers were on hand to share their insight on the birds and how to handle them.
The charity, which rescues birds before re-homing or releasing them into the wild, is home to 40 creatures.
And the organisation has plans to expand, with a growing need to recruit more volunteers.
Avon Owls is also raising money to buy a new base as its current home, in Whitley Head, is too small for its needs.
