The weather was forecast to be good this morning, so off to the owl and raptor sanctuary near Cambridge. On the drive there, contrary to the "Official" UK met office weather forecast, it clouded up and started sprinkling. The hardy Coombes', in their short sleeves, continued forth. Fortunately, fleece vests were stored in the stroller...
Millie getting into the spirit of the event:
Mom and Millie enjoying the Falcon display, you can get pretty close to the birds!
Time for the flying display, unfortunately it was cut short because of a massive downpour. An owl flew so close to Millie's face, its wing actually left a red mark on her cheek! The owl below was large enough to carry her off, so we should consider ourselves lucky.
