We are delighted to welcome Hawkeye UK back to Frampton this year after his excellent debut in 2015, fronted by Alistair Leese, bringing the ancient art of Falconry to the modern age. The breathtaking and far reaching display contains a unique mix of raptors. Watch as the Mexican Harris Hawks love to perform their range of skills and at times two or more are flown together. The Peregrine Falcons can reach speeds of up to 242mph whilst the Icelandic Gyr Falcon gains heights of up to 1000ft above the crowd returning to earth with a dramatic swoop. It is also an opportunity to see British Barn Owls, including the rare Black Barn Owl fly silently together to children and adults in the ring. The friendly but determined little Kestrel will also be flown and last but not least…the Turkmenian Eagle Owl, with its huge 6ft wingspan will spellbind you as she glides effortlessly over the crowd in a fantastic opportunity to see this beautiful bird at close quarters. Alistair will also be demonstrating his birds in the Countryside Ring at 10.50am. He has a stand in the Living Working Countryside area where you can go and see the birds and talk to the team.
