FLY LIKE AN EAGLE...
What a beautiful week it's been! Even if I don't enjoy being in full sun, sitting outdoors in the shade getting rehydrated (snigger) has been a lot of fun. I have done some crafting as well as there's another RNLI fundraiser this coming Saturday and I'm going to restock my basket down the cafe this morning.
This is a shot of my least favourite thing to do - labelling! As people often undo the totes to check out the fabric, the label needs to go through the material, I use embroidery floss instead of a plastic tag. It's tedious doing it though....sigh.
I had to replace some tote bags that sold last time, so the funky dragon flag fabric made an appearance again.
And that's it for crafting stuff. Last week saw G attending a 1-1 photo workshop at the British Bird of Prey centre nearby (it was a birthday present) I went along as spectator and tripod wrangler, it was a fab morning with close access to some spectacular birds,
GG (Great Grey) was a superstar, such a diva, I fell in love with her. She made soft little whickering noises when given her treats. G took so many pics, I'll share a couple.
Then we met Hector the Eagle Owl who was very imperious, we knew our place put it that way!
Apparently these are reasonably common in the UK! They prefer isolated conifer forests.
I did like seeing the Red Kite up close though, G took a lot of pics of her mid flight which was quite tricky.
This gives you an idea of the size of a Red Kite, Calen the falconer was about 5'5. It was magnificent seeing the beautiful bird in action...
Those eyes don't miss much!
But my fav pic has to be of the tawny owl eating her treat:
With a mouse tail like a string of spaghetti, lol!
It was a truly marvellous morning, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. They're doing a great job of protecting and conserving British raptors - it's part of the National Botanic Garden of Wales, worth checking out if you're in the area!
Have a great week xxx
