Dissecting owl pellets

Dissecting Owl pellets

Year 3 were investigating the diet of an Owl. They first watched a video showing an owlet regurgitating a pellet. They then had to predict what they would find within a pellet. The final stage of the investigation was to dissect the pellet and carefully remove and identify any remains of digested insects or small creatures.
