National Centre for Birds of Prey trip….

Had a fab trip out to the National Centre for Birds of Prey located in Dunscombe Park, Helmsley. It was a lovely scenic drive over, freezing cold, i think the temperature was around -1!. On the plus side there was hardly anyone there, so we did`nt have to wrestle to see the birds. There were so many different kinds to see, and plenty of owls which i adore. We watched a couple of flying demonstrations where they flew a Great Grey Owl (see pic), Brown Wood Owl, a Caracara and a couple of others who`s names escape me! 

Then back to the gorgeous bed and breakfast with the most gigantic bed i have ever seen, a couple of hours were spent warming up 😉 The bedroom had one of those free standing baths! Plus a huge shower that could fit a lot of people in! I made use of the bath and took some photos which will be in my AdultWork gallery when i have had a sort through.

We went back to the Birds of Prey Centre for the evening owl event. A tour and info about the owls were given, we watched them flying the owls both inside and out and they even gave us a meal too!

Back to the posh bed and breakfast to warm up……again! 😉 All that fresh air wore us out, i slept well in the gigantic comfortable bed! Morning shenanigans may have occurred 😉 then a hearty full English Breakfast. We had a stroll around Helmsley, its got lots of lovely little shops, not high street ones, so you can find different kinds of gifts. My gentleman James treated me to a lovely bangle. A leisurely drive home was had, it was snowing lightly when we got closer to Huddersfield but not settling. Another great over night had!
