Attended a flight display of a raven, barn owl and peri-saker falcon this morning. The raven clipped my hat with its wing while flying past; ace experience.
@glyph I’ve got a falconry centre up the road from me and I regularly go and pester a barn owl called Bowie.
amazing! they seem like they have a lot of personality and would be great to get to know over time.
on a raptor-related note: have you ever read 'h is for hawk' by helen macdonald?
@glyph my other half has. Says it’s amazing. It’s on my ‘To read’ pile. About half way down. Just after a Stuart Lee biography.
