So today we headed down to the Thirsk Bird of Prey Centre to do some filming. It's a great place. I've been a few times when I was younger, they have some absolutely amazing birds there, 30 species altogether. They very kindly said we could come along to do the film and we had the place to ourselves as they don't open to the public until March. As if that wasn't kind enough one of falcloners, Kerry, also came in on her day off as she looks after the Owls that we wanted to see!

I'm talking to the BTO and the Wild Watch and I'm still making plans but once I know when I'm going to do it I'll be setting up a page for people to sponsor me. I'll make sure I let you know when!2018 is the year of the owl for BTO and we are currently fundraising for a major programme of work on all our owl species. Please support our appeal if you can https://t.co/aLnRvP0oUi #ProjectOwl #SuperbOwl pic.twitter.com/sFbHzY4bKt— BTO (@_BTO) 9 January 2018
So the last thing to do is to say a big thank you again to the Thirsk Bird of Prey Centre, to the Falconers Colin, Kerry and David, to the wonderful Owls Sprout, Flynn and Spike and to the Wild Watch team for giving me the chance of this wonderful experience.
Hope you enjoyed,
