Raptors in Gloucestershire

Painting by Diane Young of the Mythological Thunderbird

Mythical Thunderbird

As Rooks have taken to chimneys where they may have lost their habitat and Peregrines have taken to our urban buildings,  churches and so on in the same way,  I have also learnt today how Little Owls are struggling with their population and are unfortunately not a protected species.

I was invited to listen to a talk on Birds of Prey,  and then happily followed it up with a drink in the Falcon!

The painting above is of a mythological bird is based on Verreaux Eagle native to Zimbabwe.  The Thunderbird has powers over the storms and is currently at Studio 71 ( I mean the painting and not the storms!) and framed for sale.  Message me for further details.
