Holiday: Part Four (Falconry Center)

I got to celebrate my 42nd birthday this year in the UK with my mum.  I managed to rope her into joining with me for a falconry experience at a center near her home and had no idea what an amazing day it would turn out to be.
 

 
It was a real privilege to get close to such powerful and magnificent creatures.  Birds of prey are truly stunning.
 
Well that marks the end of my holiday series, thanks for sticking with me.  I hope I didn't bore you all to death and that you enjoyed a peek into my UK adventures.
