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.

A cracking pin sharp image of this majestic bird devouring its lunch with relish. That Simon Fletcher has a lot to answer for, starting this animals and birds eating lunch craze on epz!Wink

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