Falconry

Post by Warley on Thu Oct 22, 2009 3:30 pm

Last Christmas I bought Paul a day doing Falconry as he loves birds of prey. It took place in north Yorkshire at the Coniston Hotel Falconry Centre near Skipton. To cut a long story short we have booked this day twice before. The first time we went it was too windy so we were sent home and the second time it was too wet so we were sent home again. Because of this, the hotel upgraded us from a normal Falconry Day to an Eagle Day to sort of say sorry for the bad luck we had had. Anyway, in September we managed to finally have a full day at flying the birds and here are some of the pictures.

Batty the Bateleur Eagle


Me flying Ghengis the Golden Eagle - he almost took my arm off when he landed. Great for the muscles though, he weights 14lb Shocked
