This is another of my birds in flight, but I have forgotten what kind of bird it is now. I did try to get this bird as close as i could, but i was very fast and I was lucky to get this.
Many thanks to every one that has left comments on my last image.

Looks like a Lugger Falcon, but without looking at his chest feather pattern it's hard to tell. Well captured, the Falcons are so fast it's very hard to get a clear detailed shot in flight.

It's always impossible to say with captive Falcons as there are so many hybrids and cross breeds.
