This is Murray, he's a European Eagle Owl and he's owned by The North East Falconry Centre, Huntly not far from where I live.

My Partner Jacqui & I stopped there to see if it was open and we got our own 2 Hour private session with the handler and his birds.

It was an amazing experience to be up close and personal with these beautiful birds, I would recommend everyone to do it.
