The two display shows for the Birds of Prey were fantastic, the guys were so informative and great company, Sarah and I were made to feel really welcome. With the castle backdrop it was a great setting for these shows.
The Egyptian Vulture was a real character, he went straight for Paul's laces and made short work of undoing them.
The Verreaux's Eagle Owl was a favourite with Sarah, stunning pink eyelids.
The Condor was like a light aircraft, I kid you not. Paul said "if it looks like it is gonna hit you, then it probably is so duck!" he came in so close.
He also cast an impressive silhouette on the castle walls.
The view from the highest tower made our knees tremble, especially when you looked through the grating to the ground below......don't like heights, and after the 500 plus steps we were ready to return to ground level.
Apparently the last person to stay in this dungeon was Rudolph Hess.
Back to the flying display and great aerial flying from the Bald eagles.
The next huge vulture was the Bearded, and what a huge bird.
The Stellar's Sea Eagle was an awesome sight to watch.
We were then treated to a close up of the Bearded Vulture.
