Default Goshawk found in Suffolk

I've picked up an adult male goshawk today in Suffolk, and any help in finding its owner would be appreciated.
It is wearing jesses and is close rung.
Regards,
Tony.

Nice thing to do Tony. Hopefully you'll be able to get it reunited with its owner, hopefully the IBR will be able to work their magic!

Kind Regards,

Bradley

Thanks.
The owner made contact this evening, and is looking forward to meeting the goshawk he last saw 7 years ago!
Best wishes,
Tony.

Unbelievable Tony, I take it that he is in good health. How did you manage to pick him up, did he get himself caught in a Partridge pen or something similar. As I am guessing after seven years it wouldn't be too keen to come to the fist of the lure. Anyway great news. Almost makes you think he might be worth releasing again seeing as he's obviously been doing so well. All the best Chris

Hi Chris,
he was caught in a Larson trap apparently, and despite a little superficial damage, is fine.
I must admit to being very taken with him, and prior to the owner getting in touch, was starting to fantasise a little .
But the original owner is excited at the prospect of having him again, so there's only one thing I can do now of course.
Best wishes,
Tony.

Yes, trip as you carry him with no equipment on so that he's 'sadly' lost back to the wild and free life he's lived for years. Poor lad.

Are you suggesting that a bird of prey is better off in the wild? Funny comment that for a falconry forum isn't it!
