Yesterday started out to be a glorious sunny day. My family and I decided to venture out to Malton. So we packed up the car and headed on our way. Malton is a majestic market town situated in the North of Yorkshire. It was my first time coming here and I simply fell in love.This market town has bags of charm, full of traditional English pubs and wonderful shops. It is loved by foodies of the North as it is known for it's Food Lovers Festival(23rd-24th May) and amazing monthly food markets.
I ordered a traditional steak and ale pie for lunch. Served with prime yorkshire beef & local ale, with a shortcrust pastry lid, chips and seasonal vegetables. The vegetables were served in a creamy sauce which was simply delicious!
After wondering round the bustling market square we headed out to Ducombe Park, a short 2 minute drive from the town's square.
Ducombe Park is home to International Centre for Birds of Prey.
The centre is home to hawks, owls, vultures, eagles, falcons and caracaras.
The show began and we was introduced to first feathery creature.
Eventually the rain passed and we were back to bright blue skies, hurray!
The birds put on a marvellous show!
There are three flying displays throughout the day. Each showcasing the variety of birds accompanied by a wealth and knowledge about each one.
The friendly staff soldiered on and did not let the rain spoil the show.
After the show we looked around the rest of the aviaries.
The owls were by far my favourite!
Thank you for reading.
Much love, The Hungry Little Lady x
