First Day of my Bubble meet with Friends
Catherine

and David
This visit to Libertys Raptor and Bird of Prey Sanctuary in Ringwood Hants, was our first pre arranged visit, promised them months ago, and they were not disappointed ,I had enjoyed my one visit there 2 years ago, then with another Bubbler Clive from Australia, it could not have turned out better on another bright sunny day!
The Lannar is a large falcon, at 43–50 cm length with a wingspan of 95–105 cm. European Lanner Falcons (Falco biarmicus feldeggi, also called Feldegg’s Falcon) have slate grey or brown-grey upperparts; most African subspecies are a paler blue grey above. The breast is streaked in northern birds, resembling greyish Saker Falcons, but the Lanner has a reddish back to the head. Sexes are similar, but the browner young birds resemble Saker Falcons even more. However, Sakers have a lighter top of the head and less clear head-side patterns. The Lanner’s call is a harsh “wray-e”.
Liberty’s Owl, Raptor and Reptile Centre is named after Liberty, our Alaskan Bald Eagle, one of the many birds of prey that we have on display at the Centre, which is located just outside Ringwood near the natural beauty of Hampshire’s New Forest National Park, and close to the splendour of Dorset’s World Heritage “Jurassic” Coast.
