Nice photo and a nice looking bird, but I think I am getting the evil eye.

we visited the Bird of prey sanctuary at Kielder Water. You can have a great experience there, you put on a very tough glove on your left hand and arm with a piece of meat in your fingers. One of the birds is released from below & it flies to you & perches on your arm. it is wonderful to hold one of these creatures & look into its eyes.

Sounds its worth a visit. Great pic David by the way! I understand that the Peregrine Falcon is sought after in the Middle East. I dont suppose they're mithered with pigeon c**p! lol

Giovanni, Keilder Water is a wonderful place. As well as the bird sanctuary, there are great walks in the woods - you come across all kinds of objects made by pupils of local schools, there is an exhibition place which is so interesting. I wish I could return.

Maybe when the Reds are playing Newcastle, I may have a long week-end there!!
