YOUNGSTERS from Long Buckby Infant School got to see some unusual visitors on Wednesday morning.

David Sharpe, from RaptorXotics, bought in three different types of owls, a barn, a white face and a long eared, which is the rarest type of owl in the country.

Explaining the reason behind the visit, the school’s headteacher, Sarah Dugdale, said: “All of the classes this year are named after owls, so because of this the Friends of the school held some fundraising events to pay for him to come in.

“The children got to ask him questions about what the owls eat and where they live when they are not with him.

“A huge thank you to the Friends of the school for organising this visit.”
