Ragley Hall Falconry Fair

Th annual british falconry fair seems to change venue but, thankfully it was still not too far away. As a bird lover, I pay particular attention to the birds as it provides me with so much insight as to their natural behaviour. I hope you enjoy the closer look at birds of prey.

If you ever get the chance to visit a show like this, it is amazing and a rare opportunity to see them up close together with very natural behaviour. I am also reminded by the falconers themselves about the threats to our world popluations of birds of prey, nearly always from man/pesticides. However, it is cheering to hear down to a lot of effort that some of them are making a comeback in Britain. The Peregrine Falcon (2nd and last), in particular. I look forward to seeing some in the natural environment too.
