Love this time of year, light nights, sunshine, great for flying the birds.
Been busy here at Speyside Falconry had lots of visitors on experiences, including kate who enjoyed a birthday experience and kindly sent some photos, and we have been out and about with the birds.
Darren is working with a couple of falcons we are adding to the team for the season ahead.
we have updated our events page with some of the events we have coming up so you can have a look and see where you might see us on display.
we got listed in a post for the top 15 falconry blogs and we ranked #9 which we are quite pleased about
We recently became a Dementia Friend. We have regualr interactions with people with dementia on our Animal Assisted Therapy visits but we also meet people with Dementia who are on private expereinces visiting us with their family. Nowadays people are living for longer and people with dementia are living at home in their communities for longer and for some this can pose problems with daily life as people have little understanding of the illness. The Alzheimer Assosication are working hard to raise awareness so people in the community can understand better, help and support people with dementia in their community. Its a great thing to be part of and i would encourage anyone to sign up and become a Dementia Friend gain a better understanding and turn that into simple actions that can help people with dementia.
