We are really excited to let you all know that the North Yorkshire Birds of Prey team, who are one of our featured events this year, are bringing something really special this year.
We will be able to view a pair of Golden Eagles who originate from Kazahstan this will be the first time a pair of Golden Eagles have been seen on a mobile display. Here are some Golden Eagle stats to share with your friends.
UPDATE: Sadly, only one golden eagle will be in attendance at this year’s show, still work checking out the Golden Eagle and over 14 other Birds of Prey coming on the day.
