Default Spotted Harris Hawk - Witham, Essex

Hi,

I spotted a Harris Hawk taking down a Woodpigeon yesterday afternoon in Witham, Essex.

It didn't seem to phased by me getting close to film it, so I'm guessing it's an escapee from a falconry or collection.

Just wanted to get it out there so if someone is missing it we can hopefully reunite them!

If you know the possible owner, please let me know and I'll tell you precisely where it was. I think it may have been hunting the area for a while.

Cheers

Smurf

According to my map that bird may have been loose since October 2016

Thanks Babs. Well he/she certainly seems to be enjoying themselves. I've seen it 3 more times since I posted!

I've had no other response other than yours, not even from the local Falconry, so I'm guessing no one wants to claim it!

Thanks

Simon
