Full Flight Birds of Prey

After having our outing to the Full Flight Birds of Prey cancelled last year due to Covid, 24 Members drove up to Miners Rest yesterday. We were all excited and ready to attempt to take motion images of the Birds of Prey.  Graeme introduced us to about six different birds, ranging from owls to a raptor and eagle. Quite a few of us laughed at our attempts to get the birds in flight and decided we need a lot more practice.
