Owls, a King and cake

Don’t you just love Sunday afternoon outings, particularly when they are spontaneous and the sun shines on a beautiful Spring day.  Worth a little jaunt out in our Rosie.

We head to Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre and Country Park and meet up with family for a fun afternoon.  It started with an owl display by Hawkwise Falconry. 

    
 Bottom, Fern and Angus (Long-eared, barn and eagle owls) behaved impeccably performing for the crowds and we had the opportunity to take part – even me, although fellow photographers weren’t quite as quick at taking photos as me!

  
   
Then it was back to Rosie for a cuppa.  

  
The campervan munchkins are in the habit of having a picnic in the back…there’ll be crumbs in the bed next time we sleep in it I’m convinced!

  
And then fully refreshed we went on a walk through the battlefield at quite a rate of knots. Those two little munchkins were racing off down the hill. 

  It took the four adults some effort to keep up with them.  Such an interesting site.  

  

 Must come back when we aren’t running down hills to fully appreciate the story of the battle that ended Richard III’s reign.

After our own battle with big sticks …that one is a bit big guys…… 

 we managed to get the munchkins to hold hands and share the stick…but not for long. 

 A lovely afternoon if not a laborious journey home thanks to sat nav having a laugh!  Looking forward to many summer trips this year, with the big one in August. Watch this space.
