Graham, thanks for enlightening me, not heard of this charity before, sounds like they're doing a great job :)
Our nine year old grandson is interested in all manner of wildlife..nothing he doesn't know about birds of prey..has a good knowledge of them and their habitat..also a lover of wildlife, try's to teach me about them, but no sooner has he got through it all when I've forgotten :roll:

Great pictures of the tattoo Eddy, an experience not to be missed :)

Eddy did you meet our #1 daughter Sarah at the tattoo? :)
She sent me just about the same photo ,same angle and subject(Royal Navy)
You and her husband Jason could not have been more than a few rows of seating apart.
She would have been the one cheering very loudly when the RN marched on :lol: :lol:

Shelagh your grandson would love it where we live.1 mile up the road is the Pacific Raptor Centre
They fly eagles ,falcons,hawks,owls and even one Turkey Vulture and even give a course on Falconry
and most weekends if "She who must be obeyed" is lawn bowling I am there.

Matt, you must feel very fortunate living so close to the Raptors - close enough to walk to :)

Patricia, Can see why they call it Rainbow Row, pretty pastel colours of the buildings :)

Graham, Bar Headed Goose - matching boots and beak :wink: very on trend :D

Graham - What a wonderful photo - you really get the impact
when same is enlarged!
While down in South Carolina we visited " Brookgreen Gardens"
which is a must if you are ever there. The various birds were
not afraid at all and just sat on the railings looking at you. We
should have labelled the photos but you know how that goes.
Do you have any idea of the name of this bird?
