Transporting a cast of falcons to Wales

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.

Courier Matthew from GoFetch was about to head [...]
