Mrs PB and myself decided to escape the fright of the Great Dorset Steam Fair and venture to the Stock Galyard Oak Fair, where there was a bird of prey display!
The stars of the show
Mere the Kestrel flight shots
R2 and D2 the Harris Hawks flight shots
Playing Hawk Tennis... did they invent the electronic line judge??
Simba the Yellow Billed Kite flight shots
And finally, a Lugger/Peregrine cross who's name I didn't catch (and it's not on the falconers website that I could see either
Wonderful Kestrel flight shots PB & the others are great too ... looks to have been a good alternative to steam rally! Never heard of a Lugger, see they are very badly treated in other countries!
