Phoenix Falconry on 25th October 2009

We took our daughter and grandaughter to Twin Lakes, an amusement park for youngsters near Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire. One of the Attractions here is a superb falconry centre, operated by Phoenix Falconry. The flying display was excellent, allowing the audience to see the birds at extremely close quarters. After the display there was the opportunity to see some of the other birds, not involved in the flying display, in close-up. It was a totally magical time. Whilst I would usually only show wildlife on this blog, I do not think that it is inappropriate to show some of these wonderful birds here.
