A flying display of a different sort

Those of you who follow me on facebook have probably already seen this – if you haven’t done so yet, go on – you might see things there you won’t see here. (as in: additional shots, ya know)

Another day at the Burren Birds of Prey centre, and it never ever gets boring.
Saker Falcon ‘Milly’ was less than co-operative during the flying display, and decided her time was better spent starting a fight with the local pair of ravens that nest on the cliff face. She spent about half an hour chasing the raven, or better: being chased by the raven.

She did come back eventually, lured in by food and probably exhausted from her air acrobatics!

  1. Scary stuff if it seems like they will never come back!!! I have one of the BBOP center tomorrow, you might recognize him :D

    • We were worried the raven would ground her and kill her, actually – lucky she did come back! LOVE your Huey :D
