We seemed rather a select number of members at our February meeting, with colds and other winter ailments affecting the attendance. We started by discussing the possible resolutions for the national AGM. If this demonstrated anything, it was that the WI's range of interests is wide-ranging, to say the least! Possible resolutions covered areas from pelvic floor health to the adverse effects of vanishing rural bus services. After coffee Louise Thorpe from the Fritton Owl Sanctuary entranced us all when she showed us her beautiful rescued barn owl (Inca). This magnificent creature with her wonderful plumage, was considered by all at the Sanctuary to be a male ... until she laid eggs! We were told of the 5 native species of owl with whom the Sanctuary works. It came as a surprise to me and, I suspect others to hear how small owls are under all the feathers - a barn owl's skull, for example, is the size of a golf ball. We heard of the Sanctuary's expansion plans to a site in Oulton Broad as part of a new attraction. The Fritton site will be retained as a hospital facility. We wish them all the best with their excellent work. The meeting closed with competition and raffle results.
