Here are two pictures from my wife and my visit to the Birds of Prey Centre at Kirby Wiske, near Northallerton in North Yorkshire.

We saw two flying displays and they were awesome.

The pictures were taken with a D70 and Sigma 170-500, aperture priority and ISO 400. Post processing in PSCS2 consisted of crop, levels and sharpening with Fred Miranda's CSPro. The frames were added using PixLabs' PhotoFramer.

Nice looking pictures!


Now the funny thing is that I think (pretty sure) that we have the former guy running the place you went to here in Duncan, Vancouver Island, BC, Canada! He moved here a couple of years ago and open a Birds of Prey center here as well, I saw him and his birds perform a year ago and read in the Pamphlet that he had been working in the UK before!

Ain't it a small world?

Very nice Cliff.........the second shot is my favorite!!
Thanks, Brian.

The bird in the second pic - a hybrid of a Gyr and a Lugger falcon - is enjoying his reward for a truly wonderful display of aerobatic hunting.

BTW: Cliff? Cliff? Do I look as though I've got a seagull on my head? LOL.
