Raptors fly in to show their feathers

Posted on

The visit to Long Road by The Raptor Foundation has become a firm favourite on the college calendar. The Foundation, which is based in brought some of its beautiful birds to College for our students to sketch, paint and photograph, provides medical care for injured raptors,  returns rehabilitated birds to the wild and provides a sanctuary for unreleasable raptors. It also carries out research into environmental problems and conservation matters, and assists with “Breed & Release” programs to rebuild raptor populations across Europe.

The birds are amazingly calm during their visit to the college and appear to enjoy the attention!
