Ghosts and ghouls, vampires and witches – it was Halloween time at the county’s premier centre for injured birds of prey at the weekend.
The Halloween Hoot at the Suffolk Owl Sanctuary in Stonham Barns, near Stowmarket, featured the haunted hotel and the tombstone trail – with its birds of prey also being displayed in public demonstrations.
Catherine Irving, from the centre, said: “It went very well; we had the tombstone trail in the woodland, there were clues which people were invited to solve – with little prizes then handed out in reception.
“They could have a little drink – vampire’s blood or witch’s brew.”
There was also bobbing for apples and a chance to create a Halloween lantern.

On Saturday, current and former armed forces personnel can get free admission to the centre during its Owls for Heroes Day.
The event will run between 10am-4.30pm with Help for Heroes merchandise and tea and cakes on offer.
