My day of Falconry with Russ Tipper.

Posted by Elizabeth Mapleston on December 11, 2011 at 3:45 PM

Well!  Excitement built up inside me like a little kid!!  This I have been looking forward to for sometime.

The day arrived and the weather couldn't of been any better.  Russ mentioning that it was ideal for the birds to fly.  We ventured into the woods to fly two Hawks, a brother and a sister they were.  She was called Doris and the other was a scruffy devil bless it!

They swooped with elegance and peacefully land on your hand/gloove.  The windspan and flight is so breathtaking...... I could do this each week, I was in such wonderment about it all.

Then we flew the new Harris Hawk..... beautiful bird.  This was then followed by flying a Falcon and Owls.

Believe me, if you are into Birds of Prey and Nature, this is well recommended.  It is full of history and education and Russ is an absolute delight telling you all about the birds and their habitat.

My thanks to Russ Tipper for the day and Petwood for the magical and mystery surroundings.  Perfect.

Photos for sale in aid of The Parrot Zoo

So far I have raised over £500 pounds for charity, through the sales of my photographic work.

£200 which went to The National Parrot Sanctuary Trust and £300 split between 2 other local charities, L.I.V.E.S and First Responders. The money will continue to rise... this is a never-ending sale.

Take a peep on 'Photos for Charity' page.  Details about ordering are there.

You can purchase these prints in A4 and A3 size.

Every single penny goes to the charity.

There is no PayPal setup for this site at the moment.  This might get sorted in the near future.

Apart from that, I hope you enjoy the website and pass it onto your friends and family and support the charities involved.  Thank you. X
