Its talon is blunted ,unusual for a hh even as an eyass ,its obviously been jumping about a lot, theyre not stressy birds unless mishandled
The jess is in from the wrong side by the way

The ring you are asking about is a breeders ring, in your case "W" denotes the size, usually fitted to females, goshawks harris hawks and peregrines and other birds of this size, but sometimes they are fitted to males incorrectly, incorrect size could result in accidental hook ups when out hunting, there looks a lot of room around your one is it a male or a female?
I would guess that the 16 could mean it is a 2016 bird, hatched in that year, and the three digits behind this could be the breeders innitials.
Get yourself a mentor not a book.
