Taken at Kelmarsh Country Fair on Bank holiday Sunday. Have been trying for a while to take a good image of this bird in flight. I think I have managed it with this one. This is the same bird as Karen's KKMoments "Eagle Eyes" and it's name is Stew (don't ask me why!). It's a Gyr/Saker hybrid and earns it's keep working to keep landfill sites free of seagulls and amazing the public at weekends. Hope you enjoy and any C/C will be welcome.

Jeannie.

WOW Jeannie this is a superb, well timed capture of 'Stew' and loved the description to hear about his 'day job'... amazing birds at the show made even more so to find that they're working birds, really fascinating. Great image, love it.

Nice shot! It is difficult to catch birds in flight and to get a decent shot but you seem to have the technique! Well Done!
