The blurb from the program says:

--------------------------------------
What Ben from Birds of Prey Displays offers is different; rather than falconry, he concentrates on the natural behaviour of these magnificent birds and shows eagles, hawks, falcons, owls, and vultures in the most natural display of its kind.

At the age of 14 Ben's obsession with birds became his job and life when he began as a volunteer at a small Yorkshire falconry center and later was employed full time. Over the past 12 years he has trained and flown hawks, kites, eagles, vultures, buzzards, and falcons, as well as more unusual birds such as ravens, kookaburras, pelicans, seriemas, and ospreys.

This was really cool to watch, and the guy was quite entertaining as well. :-) We even managed to get seats - good ones! Wewt, since my feet were seriously hurting by this time.

To watch some of the bird flights,
