Turbary Woods Owl and Bird of Prey Sanctuary

A visit to Turbary Woods Owl and Bird of Prey Sanctuary a few miles to the south west of Preston.

The great thing about Turbary Woods is the way that visitors are involved in the demonstrations and can get hands-on with the birds. The sanctuary is run entirely by volunteers and they're to be commended for the great work they do.

I spent most of my visit watching one of the demonstrations, before having a walk around the aviaries and chatting to some of the santuary volunteers.

Turbary Woods is well worth a visit if you're in the Preston area.

Some video footage of my visit:
