Some of the students in the Social Learning Base were lucky enough to have a close encounter with Samson.  Samson is a Bengal Eagle Owl and is only 7 weeks old.  The students were able to ask Mr. Fielding questions about Samson and had the option to touch or hold him if they were brave enough!  Samson was very calm with the students and happily walked around the Social Learning Base.   Samson will be returning to the Social Learning Base in a few weeks time when he will have almost doubled in size and will be able to fly.  All the students really enjoyed meeting Samson and their behaviour was excellent.  We look forward to seeing Samson again.
