THOR the eagle owl gave an Oscar-worthy performance at Ayscoughfee Hall School in Spalding, inspiring children to raise funds for the charity that’s given him a home.

The Harry Potter theme was played as Thor was carried in to a school assembly by Pam Mansfield of the Exotic Pet Refuge, Deeping St James.

The owl proceeded to win hearts as he calmly surveyed his surroundings, showing off his 270-degree head turn ability.

Deputy head teacher Sally Chester said: “The children were fascinated to hear about all the animals that have been rescued by Mrs Mansfield from the refuge.

“They asked lots of questions and learned there is even a crocodile there, called George.

“The owl was the star of the show – it wasn’t phased by anything.

“The school council, which has representatives from every class, will be doing some fundraising for the refuge this year.”
