Easter might be the season for fluffy little chicks but at Lincoln Castle over the holiday weekend bigger birds will be on display – including Mac the Harris Hawk and Loxley the Lanner Falcon.
The castle's resident falconer Derek Tindall will be on hand to answer questions and visitors will be able to see the birds in flight and be photographed with them.
The Birds of Prey falconry event is on Easter Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 11am.
The castle is open daily during April from 10am until 5pm. Entry costs £6 for adults and £4 for children (family ticket £16).
Renovation is taking place in preparation for the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta in 2015 but there is still plenty to see at the site, whose history dates back to 60AD.
