Sophie Abbott, Falconer at Swinton Park’s Bird of Prey Centre, said: We are thrilled with Neeka’s arrival here, where she is the youngest of six owls at the centre.

Over the coming months, we look forward to training her to walk to me initially and then fly to my hand, so that she can then participate in our Owl Experience days when she is mature enough.
