A 3-day old Baby Barn Owl and Adult Barn Owl. Would you recognise them?


Would you know what this was if you were shown this? Not sure that I would. And might you guess that it would grow up to be like this? The baby barn owl was taken in Benalmadena Costa at the top fot eh cable car ride and the adult barn owl at Painshill Park in Cobham

Nothing more to be said than that Birds of Prey make great photo opportunities and the same goes for Painshill Park in Surrey. Enjoy these wonderful birds.

Painshill Park Birds of Prey 2013


Painshill Park is one of the most beautiful parks in UK in cobham, Surrey. Each year they present a number of different shows, and this year Birds of Prey was the offering in August. Henfold birds of Prey provided the show and were excellent. An almost two hour demonstration of birds flying with enough information to entertain and educate the audience without boring or frightening them away. Great selection of birds. Here are a few including a nice shot of the typical mantling behaviour.
