    Default Park Rose Birds of Prey Centre, near Bridlington

    Last Saturday dropped into the Park Rose Birds of Prey Centre on the way back from Bempton Cliffs down to Leven near Beverley.

    Watched one of the twice daily displays, paying only 3.50, great value, displaying were a European Eagle Owl, a smaller Indian Eagle owl, Turkey Vulture, Barn Owl and Kestrel . They also have quite a few other raptors available to see including Goshawks, Snowy Owls, Pergrine Falcons, plus a pair of Meerkats and a pair of Wallabies. At only 13 for a family of five, it offers great entertainment for a couple of hours.

    Here are some of the birds in the display:

    What a fantastic set of birds! What I like about demonstrations like these is that you really get to appreciate the beautiful patternings that birds have.

    I really love the first shot of the Bengal Eagle Owl - he looks like a tired old man shuffling about in large slippers Although all of the owls look like they are wearing trousers
