At the height of the summer, Animalcouriers and our partner GoFetch stepped in at short notice to transport a cast of falcons to Wales from London’s Heathrow airport.
It was a very hot day when we received a call from the Animal Reception Centre (ARC) at the airport. Almost 40 falcons had arrived by air earlier in the day, and were due to travel on to the Brecon Beacons. Given the high temperatures that day, the ARC rejected the pre-booked transport in favour of a vehicle with air conditioning and electric ventilation.
Courier Matthew from GoFetch was about to head home to Wales in one of our vans following a joint trip with Animalcouriers. He quickly detoured to Heathrow to collect these handsome birds of prey, and take them to their specially designed accommodation in the Brecon Beacons.
