Coombe Martin Wildlife Park
We recently spent a short holiday in Coombe Martin North Devon. Not far from where we were staying was this Wilde Life Park.
It was opened in 1986 after being uninhabited and over grown for 10 years, The House, Higher Leigh Manor was at one time owned by an order of Nuns, and during the last war was home to evacuee children from London. It is reputed to have a number of ghosts, whose presence has been felt by many over the years
We moved on to the Falconry display, and watched an array of birds flying, including Barn Owls and Harris Hawks, I ended up with a Kookaburra sitting on my head, a photo of which will follow!
This is the Harris Hawk
And this is a Tawny Eagle, See the album for lots more photos.
