Another shot from the International Bird of Prey Centre at Newent, I'm not entirely sure, but as I remember it this is one of hybrid falcons that are regularly flown there.
This birds are fantastic flyers, although trying to keep them in the frame and get some sort of a focus on them can be a real swine, although just for a change I seemed to do quite well in this respect on Saturday.
Thanks for looking.......Ade

It's a stuffed one on a string and you've done a marvellous job cloning the string out!! Wink
