I don’t have a great deal to add to the other reviews. “Unique”, “Better than expected” “Once in a lifetime opportunity”. All of this is true. Certainly, when my sister bought me a surprise Christmas present I would never have imagined it would result in me getting to hold a golden eagle! I met Ruby, a lanner/peregrine falcon cross-breed.

Sharon and her birds of prey entertained a large gathering in Kingsdon Village Hall. Her display was not only very interesting, informative and educational but done in a very humorous way. We are trying to book her again for later in the year, her dislpay is that good
