Course Overview

STEMLinc Video Conference: Meet some of the most highly adapted predators on planet earth. Birds of Prey are a perfect example of how specialising in a certain method of hunting and focusing on certain prey species can ensure that these different types of predatory bird are not in direct competition with each other.

Details: What makes a Kestrel such a highly evolved and deadly predator of large insects and rodents? How does a Peregrine Falcon reach speeds that exceed those of Grand Prix racing cars?  How is an Owl able to tackle a mouse in complete darkness? You will meet a cross section of our beautiful raptors and marvel at their adaptations and ‘weaponry’ live in front of the camera for this exclusive video conferencing opportunity. Join our presenter Martin from Leigh Valley Hawk and Owl Sanctuary for a ‘bird’s eye’ look.
