My fiancÚ has made another video, thought I'd share it with you guys! This one isn't as good as the Loro Parque one because it's older, he didn't have a tripod and hadn't gone with the intention to film. It's a shame because he had to remove so much footage for being too wobbly to stabilize. Hope you enjoy anyway!

It's a shame he had to remove so many clips! There's a lot missing. The next one he's doing is the falconry fair one so hopefully there will be some nice shots in that of some gorgeous birds. But yeah, I hope to go there again this year and film properly

Beautiful birds! Great Job Jack! Daisy one question (well maybe 2..lol) Are they tethered to the perches by their legs? And isn't that harmful to them the way chaining parrots by the legs is?

They are indeed but no it isn't damaging. Parrots aren't designed for hunting and so don't have very strong legs whereas raptors are built with a lot of leg power. I don't agree with tethering a young and developing bird as when they bate they can break their legs. They are usually left free for a considerable amount of time with their parents so they can develop more strength Chalkie came to me with twisted legs from somebody doing the opposite But yeah, they're fine don't worry!

And thank you

Thanks for the reply Daisy...I knew it was common practice to tie them by the legs, just wondered why it was ok for them but not parrots, you explained it very well!
