Half Term Holiday Adventures – Birds of Prey

While we were having our fish and chips last night one of the waiters told us about a bird of prey centre which was only twenty minutes away – he said it was great so we decided to give it a go today.

We got there in time for the 11.30 flying display – there was  a man and a lady who walked down to where we were sitting with a bird perched on their arm – there was an owl and a harris hawk – my sister liked the owl best and it even came and sat next to her.  We learned all about the different birds there and then you can walk round and see them in their aviaries.  It is in the grounds of a house called Duncombe Park which Mum said was where this program called Parade’s End was filmed – Dad made a face and said something about a costume drama.

We had an early tea again and a DVD but they gave some owl colouring in to do which was great.
