Liberty's Raptor and Reptile Centre is named after Liberty our American Bald Eagle.
Liberty's is home to a large collection of birds of prey - eagles, owls and vultures, along with many reptiles - snakes, lizards and tortoises.

Enjoy a visit that will prove to be fun, exciting and educational for people of all ages.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Observe these birds and reptiles at close hand, through various spectacular displays held throughout the day.
Get up close and personal with giant rabbits, giant tortoises, snails, snakes and lizards.

The New Forest has a long established history with the art of falconry. Many Kings and Queens have hunted with their birds here. Indeed King William Rufus was hunting here when killed.
Liberty's is also a rescue centre for many wild injured Birds of Prey. We fund medical treatment and rehabilitation of these birds and ensure their safe release back to the wild.

I've been meaning to get down to Raptor - Reptile Center... see the signs when we go to the New Forest. Will definitely make a point of going now.

The owl looks a bit bedraggled, was it raining when you took this photo?

Love the eyes, in the photo, great expression, good colors. The resolution looks a bit low, was this a close cropped image or did you use digital zoom, perhaps? My previous camera, which I still have, is the Minolta Dimage Z1.. a nice little camera that gave me several years of good service... but I discovered early on... don't bother with the digital zoom. The results are never worth the effort; what looks good on the view screen or in the view finder never quite lives up to expectation when viewed on the monitor.

TFS, Mish
