Elvis (the owl) has left the building… after St Ives House visit
Residents welcomed some special guests to St Ives House to mark Halloween.
Bird of prey company Hawks in the Forest brought their owls Elvis, Ed and Chico to the home near Ringwood to meet the residents.
There were lots of smiles as the birds were walked around the room, giving residents time to stroke the owls.
Handler John told residents he had eight owls in total in the aviaries, and has been training birds of prey for over 30 years.
The special visit followed a Halloween party at the care home earlier in the day.
