Default Sokar's Photos

I've decided to start a thread just for my pics, I"m posting more now, and figured it would be easier to just keep them all in one thread.

The Kingsley Bird and Falconry Centre, had a display in the park here are some pictures I took.

Went down to the park Today, and the Eagle and birds where there again, and took a load more photos, to many post here, so I've uploaded them to my photobucket page here.

For those interested, the bird in the last set of pictures is called Mel, and she weighs 18 pounds, according to one of the people there, she's bigger than her mate!!!!!
