Eagle-tastic!!!


OMG a picture with me in it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This doesn't happen very often you know so make the most of it. The girls and I were staying at my Mother-In-Laws (yes, she is the best granny ever). We went to Glastonbury Abbey and whilst walking or running (the girls only I must stress) we noticed a stall with lots of birds of prey. On closer inspection you could actually hold the bird of your choice - you had to be 16 or over for the Eagle (I just made it then!!).
The girls chose the Barn Owl - he was gorgeous and the girls were excellent with him. They were so excited before and then really quiet and perfect whilst holding him. Then it was my turn, and I found out why you had to be older for the Eagle - it was sooooooo heavy, especially after he had been sitting on my arm for a while. My heart was beating so hard. He was so majestic and fantastic to look at.
The people doing the stall were from Sharandys Birds of Prey  - they were fantastic too.
