Thanks for this. It’s not often that all three birds are able to be flown on one walk, so you were lucky there! However, Lady M, the big, bold female hawk is going to be doing more work in the future and with any luck...More

Thank you. Getting this close to the birds is an unusual experience, and people who have only seen hawks or owls at a distance really get a lot out of having them on their fist. Do come again. Regards,

Thanks very much indeed for this. You were fortunate to see Cassius in predator mode. I always tell people that we are not there to hunt, because of course not everyone wants to do that, but that Cassius makes the ultimate decision. Regards,
