During the course of the evening Barney was as interested in us as we were in him, everyone was entranced especially the young daughter of a member who had come especially to see the owl. Later she was able to hold Barney and her face was a picture.
The competition was a play on words being a photo of howlin 'owlin mad, this bought a variety of photos the winner being a father with headphones on whilst nursing his baby son, who was 'howling'. The runner up caused great merriment as it was a video of dogs howling on a mobile with a sign alongside saying please play me.
