We now have a peregrine falcon flying free in our flying display which is improving week by week. The sheer speed and dexterity of this bird is a sight to behold. Not long ago the speed of these birds was measured in America by a sky diver with a pere being released at the same time from an aircraft. By the time the skydiver had to release his "shute"  it had registered 240 mph and was still accelerating!!!!!!!! Although we cannot guarantee this sort of speed you will be amazed!!!!!!!!!!!
