We are gradually putting together a schedule of dates for Displays and Shows around the UK during 2021/2, which were provisionally booked with us. As a family business we rely a lot upon the displays that we give throughout the year as well as our Experience Days. Many Country Shows had obviously been postponed or cancelled and our concern was not to leave our birds vulnerable, so it is a great relief to see things getting back to something like normality. We hope to have your continued support as it goes a long way in helping us to care for our birds and to continue with the breeding programme as well as ensuring the survival of CJ’s Birds of Prey.
