Thought I'd go through some old photos and find some of mine of birds of prey. Way back in 2003 my friend and I were spending a week in Edinburgh. She'd recently got a female Eagle Owl and was beginning her flying training, so we decided we'd search out a bird of prey centre. We rang one in Fife on the other side of the Forth, but they were no longer open to the public and only did flying displays at events. The girl said her boyfriend was away at the time up at Glamis Castle, but if we wanted to we could go up and have a look around at the birds and she would let us fly the eagle owl and could sell my friend the necessary flying line etc that she needed to progress with Merlin. They had a very impressive set up inside a huge barn, every bird labelled with full information and lots of bird.

There were quite a few birds pegged outside and quite a few in the barn, so there was still a lot of birds for us to see, so we met:

My favourite BOP - the Golden Eagle, but not in his best condition



Grey Owl



Black Eagle





And Eagle Owl, who was quite a small male as Eagle Owls go.








And my friend with her 4 month old female owl - she was big!!





A couple of photos of my favourite of the small BOPs - the Merlin. This was taken at "Wings over Mull"





And the inevitable Harris Hawk - also at Mull.





And finally, Skye, the one-footed Kestrel at our wildlife sanctuary.

This little fella took a Collared dove in the back garden a couple of days ago:
