The Gauntlet Centre, Knutsford.

We set off mid-morning for our booked visit to The Gauntlet Centre in Knutsford Cheshire. The weather was dry even if a bit windy, we arrived bang on time. 

The bird handler started Corinne of with the small birds first, Oliver was a lovely tame owl that loved to have his head stroked. He didn't fly today.

Next was Eric, it was a bit windy for him and he was reluctant to fly for us.

 Ronnie, Corinnes favourite was big, and responded well for treats.

Terry also flew well and wasn't bothered by the wind.

 Marks favourite was the Harris hawk. Slick was more interested in other things to start with but soon performed well when he realised where the food was best.

 No, we didn't get to fly the bald eagle but he looked magnificent on his perch.
