  1. Wow, some really fantastic shots there. Mostly I think they're wondering whether there are any small cute fluffy things they can eat for lunch.

    1. In that case, CJ I am glad that I am not a little fluffy thing.

  2. Lovely photos. We went to a falconry centre in the Dales quite a few years ago now. Eleanor was only little and decided she needed the loo. As she was making her way there, a red kite, which was being flown, swooped down right by the side of her and scared her half to death.

    1. Was it the falconry at Settle, Jo? The last time we went there we had the chance to fly a barn owl.

    2. I think it probably was, I had Giggleswick in my mind but that isn't far from Settle. How wonderful being able to fly the barn owl, that must have been quite an experience.

  3. Wonderful photos; I especially like the 2nd one. I wonder if their thoughts are as CJ says or would they totally surprise us.

    1. Maybe it is better that we don't know what they are thinking, Margaret.

    2. The second photograph is of Ethel a white headed vulture, Margaret.

  4. Most of those ones look as if they would say "P**s off and leave me alone!" :)

  5. What wonderful photos Sue. We keep meaning to visit the Suffolk Owl Sanctuary which is too far away from us.. we've been before and it was lovely to see the owls and other birds of prey. Their bird display was excellent too. Right must make a point of going next year. :o)

    3. I knew what you meant, Julie. I often make the same sort of mistakes. Some of my typing needs a translator to understand.

  11. What a fabulous array of characters! Some of them look very bad tempered, but then if my hair did what the feathers on some of them do...

    1. Apparently the vultures are really gentle and the eagles rather grumpy, Janet
