Take a box of plasters, Penners. Have a great time.

I will attempt to avoid doing impressions of Hodgesaargh.

We finally got to go to the falconry evening that had been postponed due to bad weather a couple of weeks ago. I did have a sort of Hodgsaargh moment when the barn owl they were flying totally ignored both handlers (and the food they held) to fly to me before landing on my arm. I wasn't wearing the gauntlets and was expecting a few cuts and scratches from the very sharp claws so I was very surprised to find her grip very gentle. She then hopped onto my camera lens and perched there while my friends were busy clicking away (photos to follow when I receive them) and the handlers frantically calling her. This happened three times altogether! :lol:

It was a fantastic evening and all round great experience. Here are a few pics to be getting on with, with more to follow later. :D

Barn Owl that almost gave me that Hodgsaargh moment.

Excellent pictures. You must have been thrilled with the Close Encounter of the Barn Owl Kind. :mrgreen:
