A big crowd flocked to the North Somerset Birds Of Prey Centre at the weekend, despite some inclement weather.

The event was one of six open days the Congresbury centre holds throughout the year. It included a flight show, where a range of birds thrilled visitors.

Spokesman for the centre, Leanne Ball, said: “It was a really good day, even though it rained.

“We still managed to get our flight show on and we had lots of families come and join us.

“We don’t receive any Government funding so its very important these open days are a success.
