Birds of Prey

After our walk to Derwent Edge yesteray we stopped off at the Rowsley shopping centre near Bakewell to look around the shops. Whilst there we saw a stand showing off some birds of prey. They were collecting money for their charity.

In return for a small donation you could hold one of the owls. The owl we held was called Muggle and is from India. First Sharon had a go, then Aamanda, and then Me.

The owl was quite heavy, you couldn't hold him for too long. Even though you got to wear a leather glove you could still feel his talons as they were very sharp. Ideal for tearing his prey to shreds.

This little demonstration was also a good chance to try and get some nice pictures. I am really pleased with the photo above. I caught him looking at me just at the right time.

This was a nice surprise to round off a good day walking (the ankle spraining wasn't to great though). We had all earned a good fish and chips dinner and a few drinks :-)
