What a wonderful day.............................. we've had our Hawk Walk Experience

Our Christmas present from my grandson Arthur was a one hour Hawk Experience at Stockley Farm.
I know it's now Easter Sunday but today was the day we had our experience... and we loved it.

It wasn't just hawks we got to handle... this lovely Barn Owl was called Spike.

We had a walk through the woods with this Harris Hawk...

... she was free to fly along with us and spent a lot of the time up in the trees looking around.

We also got to handle this 5 week old Barn Owl... how cute is he?
I have hundreds of images to go through so these are just a taster.
Many thanks Arthur... what a fantastic Christmas present.

I love owls. SO wonderful to get close to one. And the Harris's Hawk is one I know well. They live here in Tucson. They work like a football team when chasing their prey. Very cool hawks and one of the few that works as a team.

What a fabulous present! I can't resist a bird of prey show when I see one advertised but how amazing to get so close.
