Stratford Clicks visit to S&D Falconry
Our latest adventure with Stratford Clicks (local photography group) was a rather special evening with some fabulous birds of prey. Our hosts Stephen & Debbie, owners of S&D Falconry at Wootton Park near Stratford upon Avon, introduced us to some of their very beautiful birds. They have a fantastic knowledge of living and working with these amazing creatures and are quite fascinating to listen to. We were fortunate to have a lovely evening with good light for photos and just a light breeze (an important factor when flying the birds.)
First up were Felix & Fudge. A Snowy Owl & a Barn Owl. Watching them in flight was an amazing sight.
Next a rather regal Peregrine Falcon & a sweet Kestrel.
We spent a long time photographing this very pretty Barn Owl, Molly. She can be booked for weddings as a ring bearer! The special bond between Mollie and Debbie is quite evident.
What a handsome beauty! Alfie, is a very striking bird, a Great Horned Owl. Watching everything intently. You certainly wouldn’t want to be at the receiving end of those massive sharp talons.
Ah sweet little Izzy. Just 8 weeks old, she has been with Debbie & Stephen since she was 3 weeks old. I think she must be the cutest thing I have seen in a while…
You can find out about all the great things that S&D offer on their website. You can even have your own photography session with the birds or a woodland walk with owls.
