Owl Pellets Workshop

The big activity of the day was an owl pellet workshop.  Went down a storm.  When I’d talked to Sam about it yesterday he was appalled at the idea.  He really enjoyed it though.  There are times Mum does know best 🙂

Big cup of coffee and seeing how happy and proud Sam is with his card of bones picked me up though 🙂
