Hi...many thanks for your clicks and kind words regarding my last couple of uploads
.....you have done me proud.

This fine speciman a "bateleur eagle" was shot at the falconry centre near Kirby Wiske in North Yorkshire,
it's colours are truly amazing and my picture can not do it justice.

If you are ever in the area or even if you're not, a visit to Kirby Wiske would not be a waste....trust me.

Thanks for looking....stay lucky....Mike
