In recent weeks our owlet have had a lot of love and attention from our online communities. Their photo has been shared on our national and regional accounts and helps to highlight some of the work we do that isn’t seen.
Here’s more info from our press office..
FIVE BARN OWL chicks were snapped by a National Trust volunteer during a recent survey in the Warwickshire parkland where William Shakespeare was supposedly caught poaching deer.
It is believed that the brood of two female and three male chicks were between 41 and 53 days old when they were checked earlier this autumn by volunteers from the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO) at Charlecote Park, near Stratford-upon-Avon.
If you’ve been to Charlecote over the past few weeks you may well have seen the wonderful gingerbread creation that has been on display. It has been very patiently baked and built by one of our volunteers – Jana.
Want to know how on earth she managed it? Read on…
Isn’t it funny how a joke one year can end up turning into something real the next? It was a year ago when a National Trust Gingerbread House appeared in my feed on twitter and a joke was made that Charlecote Park should be made out of gingerbread because it is the right colour.
Did you know that the National Trust has its own passport and there is absolutely no need for any awkward photos!
You can pick up an NT passport for the small price of £4 in our shops and, at each of our special places, get it stamped. Once you have collected 30 stamps you can get a certificate which is sent to you from our central office.
Our passports are popular with visitors of all ages!
Oliver, aged 1, has had his since he was just a few months old and is using it to record his first forages to National Trust properties.
Where will you go?
Why not pick one up from our shop and record your own adventures? We’d love to see where you get to!
