"Birds of Prey"
This week we welcomed Derek Curtis of DLS Falconry and his birds to the club. He arrived with Calvin and seven "friends" led by Orpheus a Bengal Eagle Owl.
We had set up a couple of Perches on tables to allow for members to get in close to photograph the birds.
Derek and Calvin displayed all the birds in turn an American Kestrel, Barn Owl, African Spotted Owl (the grey one), Boobook Owl, Lanner Falcon and the Harris Hawk. All the birds provided us with some great shots and
although 42 members came on the night there was no overcrowding or jostling for positions. Derek and Calvin answered many questions about their birds and members children who came were all enthralled by the display.
Derek invited any members to contact him for further information at DLS Falconry based at the Rising Sun Country Park.
We had lots of good feedback from the members on the night so looking forward to seeing some images in future competitions.
A thank you to Derek and Calvin and all who turned up.
