Sunday - a day out - almost to England, but not quite !

 Lovely fine start to the day
 Dogs just had a quick dash up the hill as we wanted to get on the road !
 Guess where we were ! The road works at Temple - not as bad as they would have been on Saturday - but we were heading further up the A30 to Werrington Park near Launceston - in fact only around 2 miles from where Wooster was born and less than that from the River Tamar and Devon. There is a Country Fair every other year which we like to attend. No controversial photos - a Country Fair is about all aspects of country life - but don't want any rude comments ! !
Just a few photos of my favourite part - the Falconry Display - Waiting for his performance this lovely Harris Hawk
 Wondered why it was so noisy - it was only 17 weeks old, just a baby really - non-native captive bred bird
The beautiful and very fast Peregrine Falcons

 Jonathan Marshall and one of his beautiful horses - this one is in the latest Lloyds Bank advert where it appears to walk through an office etc. All done on a treadmill with a green screen ! He also has two pure white horses that appear in Game of Thrones
 Some Dressage moves
 Then in comes  the Harris Hawk
 Shouting away as he is launched
 Tends to land on tents and anywhere he chooses really !
 Time for the Peregrine Falcon to perform - it was amazing flying high and wide then zooming in on a stoop towards the lure
 The finale was for it to fly right through the horses legs - the lure being held in just the right place and pulled up at the last moment - The Peregrine missed the first time
 Incoming the second time
 and through it went - almost too fast to see - had to keep finger on the shutter and hope !
 Having done well, he gets the meat on the lure
 Keeping an eye on the pesky dogs in the audience
Guarding it well
 We then walked along to the shooting area where there was Clay Pigeon training and a competetion. Didn't realise that neither of us took photos of the dog scurry etc - we were busy chatting
 Nice little lake as we walked back out to the car - thought I'd taken photo of the beautiful but very hilly site where all the cars were parked - not for the faint hearted, but at least it was dry this time - last time we went they were having to tow lots of cars out
 We then stopped off at Cardinham Woods near Bodmin to give the dogs a proper run as they'd only had a few minutes off the lead all day.
When we got home we spotted the lovely old vessel Leader heading for Newlyn

    1. We really enjoyed the fair - sad that we don't have more of that kind of day down here - just one small fair at the end of August - the others are all steam fairs ! Noticed this evening how early the sun had set - oh dear ! Sue
