Saturday 19 May 2012: The unexpected
The last thing I expected to find, on St Andrews High Street, was a Harris Hawk!
A local man had his bird perched on the church railings. He indicated a building nearby as his house and told me he kept nine birds there. He works them every evening, to clear rabbits from the golf courses. I should have asked him at what time! It would have been worthwhile another trip just to see the birds in action.
MammaFi, Felciteajenny and I left Granny Pam to browse around the town and headed off for a wonderful walk along the windswept beach. Wind surfers, dogs at play and sand castles all present on this sunny, but cold, day. Of all the photos I took this was the odd one out.
Again, my apologies for lack of comments but I'm sure you'll understand...rare family time is precious!
