Meet Henry

This is Henry – he is the newest resident of the Burren Birds of Prey Centre in Ballyvaughan, Ireland.
A Rüppel’s Griffon Vulture.

Big guy, he is – his wingspan is something like 7 feet!
Soon, hopefully, when he’s settled in properly (he only arrived last week) and has gotten used to his pen-mate Dyson (a white-backed vulture), we will see the two of them soaring the skies during the flying displays. I can’t wait :D
