The latest edition to the 12 Pics series is Muncaster Castle and Gardens with the Hawk and Owl Centre, at Ravenglass, Cumbria.
This was a day out. With an excuse to photograph some birds of prey and get a bit of BIF practice in. The day in question happened to be a bit cloudy after the previous days glorious sunshine.
You can quite easily spend all day walking and photographing here, with an Owl display in the morning, a ‘Sky Hunters’ flying display early afternoon and a ‘Wild Heron feed session’ around 4.00pm. In between the displays extensive grounds offer photographic opportunity. A range of refreshments are available if you don’t want to carry your own.
