Charlie the ferruginous is 4 years old and came to us in 2016
she had never been flown and had lived in a garden in wales tethered to a long line.
She has been used on some of our experiences in the time she’s been with us and now flown free…. at a flying weight of 4lb2oz and a wingspan of 4 ft she is a large hawk.
