One from back in the summer, as I am running out of new images, due to lousy weather again!!! Snow forecast down here again tomorrow !!! Sorry I can't remember for the life of me what bird of prey this is !!

Please look large if you have the time

Thank you as always for all your C&C's very much appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Doesn't matter what it it is Hugh. The look in that eye, and that murderous beak, tell you everything you need to know !.

Good morning, Hugh,
You could not get much closer, I reckon! What an excellent shot, with the eye and surrounding plumage being pin sharp. Nice one to have tucked away in the archives for a rainy day.
Ronnie.

Looks like a Red Kite to me Hugh but not 100%. One of my favourite subjects. Nice close up shot. Those beaks are pretty sharp if they get hold of you! Louise
