Saker Falcon Free Flight at an English Castle

Hi all,

Thought I'd share another couple of videos. This is from a recent trip to the UK pre Christmas 2013. It's at Kenilworth Castle, Warwickshire, where they held a Festive Falconry demonstration weekend. We were staying about 4 hours' drive away, but there was no way I was missing it!

The lady on the mic gives a really good explanation of their behaviour and flight style - well worth a watch. My favourite part is at 1:45, where it stoops directly over my camera. It had a small bell attached to its leg, which whistles as it shoots by. 

A really enjoyable day!

Very spectacular! :) I also enjoyed watching the absolute havoc it caused in the rest of the bird population.
