Hundreds of Fortune Green residents were treated to a birds of prey display.
Organised by Friends of Fortune Green , the Birds of Bray static display on Sunday, September 19 featured owls, hawks, redtails and kestrels.
Committee member Mike Jennings said the event went well.
He told the Ham&High: "It was a family educational event, which is exactly the kind of thing that we like to host.
"It boosts the community feeling and allows neighbours to socialise."
