Hawk Conservancy, Andover, Hampshire

Hi

O/H bought me a gift experience for my birthday, well booked it & went to it.

What an excellent day out.   :D

Handled everything from vultures, owls, hawks & eagles.

I don't want my pic on the net, so clipped it to show a harris hawk on my arm.



End of the day we were luckily allowed to fly a Tawny Eagle & hold a male Bald eagle.

Even for just a day out the place is great, lots of display's through the day, low flying birds above your head.

Monies go to research, rehabilitation, conservation ect. Great bustard release uk, Vulture conservation africa, they have been involved with releasing Red Kites uk

A link for those interested, a Uk registered Charity.

This was my favourite place to go with my family when I was growing up in Hampshire!
