Shoppers in Halifax enjoyed getting up close and personal with birds of prey.
York Birds of Prey showcased a selection of their birds last weekend at Woolshops Shopping Centre.
The event was the first in a series taking place over the next three months to give people the chance to meet and handle a variety of birds including two baby goshhawks.
Falconry experts were also on site to give information about the history of falconry, the different species of birds, their diets and habitats.
Jason Gregg, centre manager, said: “York Birds of Prey were a welcome addition to the centre at the weekend as we celebrated Yorkshire Day. It was fantastic to see so many shoppers take an interest in the rare birds.”
Since opening in 2013, The York Birds of Prey Centre has grown in popularity and is now home to more than 70 birds with 45 different species at the site at Burn Hall, Huby, just outside York.
For anyone who missed out, York Birds of Prey will be returning to the Woolshops Shopping centre on the 15th 16th August 15 and 16, September 19 and October 3.
