Avon Wildlife Safari Day 7 - Meet an Owl

Today's wildlife safari top tip is to visit the wonderful Tyntesfield estate in North Somerset, owned by the National Trust. The estate is home to bats, badgers, foxes, deer and hares with over 800 different species of fungi, rare newts, breeding buzzards and beautiful orchids growing in the lawns.
Read the Tyntesfield Wild Blog before you go to catch up on the latest news and see some fantastic photos of the wildlife on site, such as the 'ninja wasp' and 'bejewelled damsel'.

On 26th July, Avon Owls will be bringing some of their owls to the estate. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the owls that live in the woods at Tyntesfield and get up close to one of these stunningly beautiful birds. So if you are working your way through your '50 things to do before you're 11 3/4 list' this is a great opportunity to tick off 'hold a scary beast'! For more information phone Tyntesfield on 01275461900 or email

Don't forget that the
 Gromit Unleashed trail is also at Tyntesfield, so while you're there see if you can spot this family favourite and tick it off your list. Then you'll be one step close to finding all 80 this summer!
