Medieval fair, day four
One of the attractions that we found at the Medieval Fair in Jarrow (which is only three miles from South Shields centre) was a falconry display with a number of hunting birds and other birds of prey, one of which lost itself in some nearby trees for a while! He came back eventually, much to everyone’s relief.
This is the face of an eagle owl, tightly cropped from a larger image.
