On Thursday 15th March, to support British Science Week, our science department invited Xtreme Falconry to the Academy to put on a Bird of Prey display for our Year 7 and Year 8 students.
Xtreme Falconry is a small rescue centre and bird sanctuary based in Dorset. Martin, an expert with over 30 years of experience in bird handling, brought in a small selection of birds for the students to see, including owls, falcons and even a bald eagle!
The students had a lot of questions to ask Martin; ranging from an owl's dietary requirements, to what other animals Martin kept at home! It was a very fun and informative morning for everybody!
