Rotorua report 3

On Tuesday we went out to Wingspan. We meant to go 2 years ago but the weather was far too wet.  We arrived just in time to see the flying display, which was fascinating.  The first falcon, Ozzy, was very small, and flew very low over the heads of the spectators (there must have been 50 or so people there).  Daniel got to wear the glove and feed him
Hannah and Andrew also got a chance to feed a falcon, when the next one came out, a larger female.

There were 2 wee baby falcons, only a few days old

The presentation was very informative and we all learned a lot.  As we were leaving there was a guy with a harrier, they are huge birds up close, with beautiful plumage.
