This magnificent bird was captured during a flying demonstration at the Hawk Conservancy Trust, Weyhill nr Andover. Not everyones favourite birds but they do perform a very valuable service in the wild by eating the corpse of dead animals.This bird, of course, is a captive resident of the Trust and here he was just coming in to the handler.
Hope you will like him.
Much appreciate all the generous c/c's for the Junior Robin and particular thanks to Peter (Lex Equine) for the UA.
Apologise for just votes at present (few comments) but rather pushed for time.
