Simonside Country Fair~August 2017~ birdy edition

Part 1.  Part 2.

As well as lots of doggies at the fair, there were a couple of Llama’s mooching about

but most exciting, at least for me, was the birds of prey display.  On the whole I do not like to think of birds being trained or caged, but the chap who owns the birds and did the display explained all about each bird. Some are endangered species, some are rescue birds, all are loved and cared for, and all are absolutely magnificent.  I took loads of photo’s, but will try to restrain myself here 🙂

And that’s the end of our day out at the country fair.

Stay tooned for next time when we’ll be visiting the Pow Hill Nature Reserve on a sunny day up in Northumberland.
