Bird of prey at play
This afternoon Nikonabike and I cycled to Mary Arden’s Farm (8 miles round trip – I’m counting!). Mary Arden’s Farm was the home of Shakespeare’s mother. We have an annual ticket, so it’s a nice distance to cycle to for a cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon.
This weekend they were holding their annual Apple Days. There were Tudor apple cooking demonstrations (chutney and the like), local cider tasting, displays of farm animals, birds of prey, Tudor dancing, Morris dancing, and mummers’ plays (as opposed to mummas playing).
This was the eagle owl during the birds of prey display. We have seen him before, (see my Blip for 29th May this year) but he is still beautiful to watch.
He had just taken off to fly back to the falconer in the distance.
