I had a fabulous time at Dublin Falconry this afternoon. It’s located just outside Balbriggan, North Co. Dublin and is run by Trevor Roche. It’s obvious that Trevor loves what he does and is deeply committed to his birds, and he speaks very passionately and knowledgeably about conservation and taking proper care of these species, some of which are endangered.
We got to witness a flying display, one with a beautiful owl, who was extremely friendly and perched on my arm a few times, and one with a harris hawk, who had a more forbidding manner about him but was fascinating to watch in flight. Here’s a couple of pictures of our visit, for more the full album is up on Facebook.
