Today we took my niece and nephew for a day out. We headed towards Bridlington to see some fascinating birds of prey at Park Rose Bird of Prey Centre & Animal Park.
This seagull was not one of them, but we forgot any decent camera and the camera on my phone wasn’t good enough to catch the birds in flight – so this seagull will have to do!
There was a show of the birds of prey flying, given in part by members of the young falconers club. First we saw a barn owl called Plop, named after the owl who was afraid of the dark. Next we saw an eagle owl called Merlin. Apparently the female eagle owl can take down a small deer, so it was probably a good thing that we left pugs Molly and George at home!
Then we headed to Bridlington for ice cream and donuts on the pier, where we took a ride on a real pirate ship! Apparently pirate ships are powered using diesel and are accompanied by sea shanties from the likes of Boyzone and Westlife!
