Wednesday 9 September – Falcons at home

Chris with Rainbow

Chris with Rainbow

This was the day the falcons came to visit the farm, bringing with them Nick Fox and his merry troop of riders. Here I am with Rainbow, an 8 year old falcon (i.e. a female, males are called tercels since they are a third smaller than females).

There wasn’t much of a haul – the crows obviously found somewhere else to go – but what a beautiful sunny day for it. On the left is Mary Anne Rogers, the countryside artist (website here), and Dr. Fox is on the right – this is his website.
