Photographer's Note

This guy had seen too much of Hitchcock's film I think!

Near Gloucester, at Netheridge farm, is the "Barn Owl Centre", where they rescue and train owls. All their birds come from places where they had been in danger: Barns that were being transformed into houses and thus deprived the owls from their habitat; birds that had been hurt by cars, or that had been family pets and not wanted any longer (unfortunately, owning an owl as a pet is legal in Britain, unlike in France. But of course, it wouldn't be a good idea to let a former pet back into the wild, it just wouldn't survive.)

The barn owl centre is visited by families and schools, and teaches about the conservation of birds in their natural habitats, and how to preserve the life of these precious birds, in the wild , when possible.
So, it was the perfect place to visit "On Harry Potter's trail", after visiting the cloisters ( Pict 105 )
However, this is a barn owl, whereas Harry Potter's pet was a snowy owl twice as big.

In WS, you'll see a young lady who was braver and proud to welcome the owl on his mail round?
