The tenth anniversary of the Raptor Foundation in Woodhurst was celebrated at the weekend with 1,500 visitors over the two days.

There was free entry with donations.

The guests included the Mayor of Huntingdon, Councillor Jeff Dutton and his family, and the fun included a Viking re-enactment, face painting, a bouncy castle, make-your-own owl T-shirts and the usual three flights a day of birds of prey.

The action continued despite the rainy weather as the centre has an indoor as well as an outdoor arena, a cafe and a gift shop.

A spokesman for the foundation said: "We would like to thank all the people who supported us during the weekend. It was a great success."
