The Falconry Center

Last weekend saw us visit “The Falconry Center” again, words cannot really describe the situation as the weather was just about perfect, the subject matter speaks for itself and anyway this is “what Andy sees” not what Andy talks about!…..:))

“‘ere John, I don’t want to fly today, how about just giving me a snack or two?”

Happy Weekend everybody!………:)

Ragley Hall Falconry Fair

Last weekend saw the return of the internationally renowned Falconry Fair, held this year at Ragley Hall.

We first went to this show last year and were impressed with the flying displays, however this year if anything it was better….. the weather certainly was!…….:))

Big thanks to the organisers who enabled us to practice our flying shots again!……:)

Birds of Prey

With our first real outing of the year we thought Shugborough in Staffordshire having a Game Fair this early would be a good choice!…..
How right we were!….. a cracking day out and a good opportunity to take some bird shots that have been sadly lacking for months…..

Hope you like viewing as much as we enjoyed taking!…..:))

All of the above are worth a click to see full size!………..:)

Croft Castle Falconry

Trevor Hill strikes again!….. another superb day with two displays of birds of prey which is both entertaining and educational…… Below are a few of the hundred or so images that I took, but once again most of the birds evaded my best efforts to capture them on disc!………:(

Falconry at Berrington Hall

To continue on the Berrington Hall theme, we re-visited today due to there being the Spring Fair. As a part of this fair the well renowned Tenbury falconer Trevor Hall was displaying some of his incredible range of birds of prey.

Chrissy and I have seen a few falconers display before, but this was something new to us, the variety, humour and level of education available during his display was impressive, check out the shots below……..:)

Chetwynd Park Falconry

We visited the British Falconry & Raptor Fair today at Chetwynd Park, If you are at all interested in birds of prey it is an ideal opportunity to capture these wonderful birds at work!…. I just wish I was able to capture better images in poor light!….:(
