    Hold still while I make a small scar on your head so we can call you Harry.

    I have a gorgeous picture of my granddaughter holding an owl when she was about 5, they really are very graceful animals.

    Very nice. I remember going to a few things like that as a kid. Always enjoyed them. Bit of an honor there for them to let you look after one of their birds. Thanks for sharing.

    There was no charge, but if you wanted to you could make a donation to help cover the transport cost

    In the main street in Newcastle there is a lady who has two owls for people to hold and have photographs taken with. At first I thought well as a a one off it was nice for Children and Adults to see [HarryPotter connection] but now she is there day in day out charging people £3 a pop to hold/get a photograph and basically exploiting these beautiful birds for gain which for me is rather distasteful.
