Thumbs up Re: Lost Gyr Falcon

I hope you get em back Terry.
If you get any sightings I guess you would be looking at trapping if they are untrained birds?
Im a long way off but if in the remotest chance I should here anything Ill be straight on the blower.

goodluck,

Mark

Once again thanks Guy's.

The Gyr took off and climbed to 250/300 feet and was off like a rocket in the direction of Essex but she may have landed here on the Island with the weather and winds on the day anything is possible. The other 2 headed off in the opposite direction towards Sittingbourne but the wind may have blown them off in a different direction.
It is just a guessing game at the moment and we just have to wait and see but a big white fronted Gyr would not be easy to miss so she just may turn up somewhere.
Regards
Terry

Terry,

Sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you get them back soon. Do you think these birds can hunt and fend for themselves in the wild?

Regards,

Salman

There is not a lot we can do at the moment until we get a sighting and even then it will be a problem as these are untrained birds kept for breeding except the Male that is.

hi terry,
am gutted to hear of your loss. a couple of questions which may help in the recovery for which i wish you all the best:-

i) are these imprints? and if so what would you expect there reactions would be at close quarters? ie if you got a sighting and got near to one could they be easily trapped at the sight of a quail (providing they were hungry etc)

ii) which trapping method would you recommend? or are you really after sightings etc.

kindest regards

Dave.
P.s. any news?

Hi Dave, All the birds are Parent reared so no they are not tame. They are used to people being around them but they have had little handling.
I would think that they may come down to a Quail or some chicks and then walked in with a creance line 3 or 4 circles around the bird and slowly pulled in to trap the birds feet would work and then when trapped walk up the line to the bird. Don't forget to tie the food down so the bird can't carry though.
The better option would be to use a large Larsen trap baited with food.

These birds have not been hunted so how well they will survive I don't know but there have been no sightings locally and as I said before these bird are very fit so they could be anywhere by now.

Hope this helps and thanks for your interest

Terry
