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.
