DD Hope and I went to
which is quite near to us
at Lingfield, Surrey.
Hope was keen to practice with her camera
and I'm always more than happy to see the animals.
All the animals at the centre are indigenous to the UK
and are housed in superb enclosures.
We really enjoyed an owl display,
showing a tiny owl called Scrappy,
Snowy Owls, this one was called Hedwig
and Ethel, a large and hungry Eagle Owl
that can crush the skull of a deer in her talons.

We bumped into my friend Ali,
out with 2 of her children and it was lovely to
catch up with her and wander round
together for a while.
A very enjoyable afternoon
followed by a fish 'n' chip supper,
