Birds of prey fly in to thrill the crowds
Visitors to Oxford Castle got a close look at birds of prey last Tuesday.
Sandra Jones, who runs Fir Tree Falcony in Warmington, near Banbury, brought an Indian eagle owl and a kestrel.
Mrs Jones, 62, also brought a barn owl, harris hawk and a white-faced owl from South Africa at the event staged by Oxford Castle, off New Road. She said: “People were amazed to be able to get so close to the birds and hold them. The children absolutely loved it.
“We didn’t do flying demonstrations because of the weather. The birds don’t like flying in the wind and rain.
“This is our third annual visit to the Oxford Castle site.”
