FAMILIES can join an owl prowl in Wapley Bushes nature reserve with expert Ian McGuire.

The free event on Friday, November 10, has been organised by Wapley Bushes Conservation Group.

Mr McGuire runs the WildOwlTV website and YouTube channel and during the event will call owls as they stake out and defend their territory.

Dodington parish councillor Paul Hulbert said: “Children love exploring the countryside in the dark. Ian has a talent for calling wild owls and if we're as lucky as last time ,we may see wild owls in the trees above us.”

Anyone who wants to go along should meet at the Shire Way entrance to the reserve in south Yate at 7pm, wearing warm clothes and sturdy footwear and carrying a torch.
