Another owl…

The long eared owl.


This one’s a baby – only around 8 weeks old here.

Birds of Prey

Not been able to post for a while, so thought I’d just catch up quickly.

We went to a local Rural Crafts fair a couple of weeks ago, to see the Birds of prey.  They do a display with them, which is always really interesting, although this time it was a bit of a disaster, cos the Harris hawk flew into the trees and didn’t want to come down.  I really felt for the poor guys who were doing this for the first time.  Anyway, this is what we saw.

The good thing is when my son gets married next year (2011), he’s booked a Hawk display as part of the wedding – along with a caricaturist, lol – so we’ll be able to enjoy them again in the gorgeous grounds of Peckforton Castle!
