Frankham-RMS Goes WILD!

Picture3IMG_1888Earlier in July Frankham RMS (Sidcup) Team arranged a family day at Eagle Heights, a local donation funded, Bird of Prey Centre.

Eagle Heights is situated in Eynsford, Kent, overlooking the village itself with views over the Darent Valley.

 

The centre opened in 1996, initially with around 30 birds. It’s exciting displays and wonderful surroundings soon became popular and the centre rapidly expanded, now housing between 150 – 200 birds at any one time.

During the day the Team also got the chance to see Hayla, the official live Mascot of Crystal Palace Football Club.
