Excitement as Year Two examine real owl pellets!

As part of our topic about nocturnal animals we heard that owls eat other small creatures. We wondered how we could find out more about this so we decided to examine owl pellets. Pellets are regurgitated by owls after they have had several meals. They contain bits of bone, fur or feathers from smaller creatures that they have eaten! It was so exciting finding parts of a vole's jaw or a field mouse's leg bone!
