YOUNGSTERS got to have their picture taken with a lesser-known star of the Harry Potter films.
Billy the European Eagle Owl posed for snaps and acted as inspiration for budding artists at the Lee-on-the-Solent Community Centre on Saturday.
He was part of a fun-day organised by the local residents association, which also included craft stalls, a bouncy assault course, and activities run by the Scouts, library staff and local pre-schools.
Association chairman Richard Mackay said: ‘It was a fantastic success. We must have had around 500 people attend and the weather even brightened up for us.’
