Eagle owl, medieval fair, jarrow

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.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 82 mm lens, 1/350 second, f5.6, iso 200
