    Nothing to do with X-Factor, it’s just shameless keyword use, but there is a vote involved in a similar popular vote and campaign for families to drum up votes for their fame seeking loved one. The Feathers and Fur Falconry Centre plays host to photography days, where eagle-eyed (or owl-eyed...
