A couple of weeks ago we were at Warwick Castle with my family, and saw a brilliant display by some birds of prey:
The show started with this Verreaux's Eagle Owl (if I have the name right...) zooming in from the woods to land on the handler's arm:
After the owl had done its stuff, a Bald Eagle came out ot play, and put on a great show by flying between the handler near the audience and another one up on the battlements of the castle:
Finally, we had a Steller's Sea Eagle, which is the heaviest eagle in the world:
Check out the size of the bird's feet! Its toes are almost as thick as the handlers' fingers!
There's also lots of peacocks roaming around - I guess they are too big for the eagles to tackle, though earlier in the day we did see one of the display birds having a go at catching a duck!
Finally, one non-bird-related photo - we also saw this huge trebucet fire a flaming ball across the field!
Oh, and there was a castle to explore too, of course!
