Falconry

This post has 24 photos Jun 23, 2012Comments (3)341 views

A few months back I went on a falconry experience at The Birds Of Prey Centre in Biggleswade. The experience was both enjoyable and educational, and the staff at the centre were really both very helpful and knowledgeable about their birds.


As well as having the privilege of holding these magnificent birds, I managed to photograph the wide variety of birds of prey that resided at the centre. The owls were not as boisterous as the hawks, and devoured their lunch (little chicks) whole, while the hawks tore them to pieces.

 

We saw birds in flight and perched, and they brought out a baby Andean Condor, the bird with the largest wingspan.

 

All in all, a great day out with some wonderful experiences. Highly recommended!

@Kevin. All the images of me were taken with a Canon 24-70mm or Canon 70-200mm, and all my shots of the birds were taken with a Nikkor 70-200mm.
