A Merlin (Falco columbarius) plucking his prey. Taken at a Birds of Prey workshop on open moorland in Northumberland last June. This bird was handled by a falconer.

Many thanks for your C&Cs on my last upload, with special thanks to Terry (Terry L), Adrian (tomcat), Derek (Derek_Fearn), Bill (richmowil) and Ron (Maiwand) for their User Awards - very much appreciated and highly valued Smile

So beautiful to see him in a natural context. I have never seen a falconer @ work must be a fascinating experience.
