Learn about UK Owls

Learn about Owls - Media Image

Help students gather interest in owls by participating in our colouring in the owls activity. They can either colour them in appropriately or artistically as they like. Ask them to identify and find three facts about each owl that’s demonstrated in the colour page.

Here are several questions you can ask:

  • What do the different owls eat?
  • Where do they live?
  • How fast do they fly?
  • What adaptations do they have that make them good hunters?

In the colouring page sheet, there are 5 different owl species that are found in the UK, they are:

  1. Tawny owl
  2. Barn owl
  3. Little owl
  4. Long eared owl
  5. Short-eared owl

  • Tree Cathedral

    Contrary to what many believe, Milton Keynes does have its own cathedral. But like the city itself, this cathedral is unique - made from bark and leaves rather than bricks and mortar.

  • Ouse Valley Park

    The Ouse Valley Park lies in the floodplain of the Great Ouse which flows from Oxfordshire to the Wash. The park is the most rural of any found in Milton Keynes and is a great place to go to experience the feeling of the countryside without leaving the city. Old trees, hedgerows, meadows, and new plantations combine to provide excellent habitats for wildlife.

  • Stony Stratford Nature Reserve

    In 2008 with support from the Riverside Parks Group, work began to re-establish Stony Stratford Nature Reserve as a major local wildlife park. Parties of volunteers have cleared islands of scrub allowing Wildfowl to nest. There are also renovated and painted bird hides and the ponds have been cleared of invasive vegetation as well as the restoration of a sand martin nest bank, which has enabled Kingfishers to nest successfully.

  • Floodplain Forest Nature Reserve
