A Banwell animal sanctuary will host its first open day of the year at the weekend, giving people the chance to learn more about birds of prey.
Avon Owls, in Whitley Head, will open its doors to the public on Sunday from 10am-5pm.
The event will give animal lovers the opportunity to learn more about the creatures at the bird of prey centre.
The charity’s team of experts will be on hand to share their wisdom on the birds with guests.
A spokesman said the event will help the centre to raise some important money through people’s donations.
They added: “This is our first open day of the year, so come and see these magnificent birds.
“There is no fixed fee for entry, however we ask for a donation.”
