Yesterday (Saturday) one of the local garden centres had a display by a local falconer and he flew some of the birds. The weather wasn't up to much but I did manage to get some flight shots of this eagle. The frustrating thing being I can't remember it's name! Hey ho!
And today, another Falconer was flying his birds at Painshill. Unfortunately the light was dreadful and it drizzled most of the afternoon.
So pictures mostly of birds sitting on their perches.
A Bateleur Eagle
And my favourite, a Barn Owl
doing what Barn Owls should in the early afternoon - dozing.
When the drizzle stopped for a bit, I went for a short wander before rain drove the camera under cover and me - to home!
Rather tatty looking flutter!
A Red tailed Bumblebee - whoo hoo!
Buff tailed Bumble (I think)
Still looking for Cinnabar moth caterpillars and still not finding any, I did come across this rather colourful fly..
and these rather "occupied" red beetles!
Not the most inspiring weekend for pictures - one of those, sadly, when you're inclined to think .... "was it worth it?" Never mind; I'm sure the sun will come out to play - eventually!!
