This particular bird had anklets on as we were at the show who's land it was on and the gamekeeper came over to us asking it it was ours. It had gone in after a Jay.

To say it should go back to the wild is ludicrous, you don't even know for certain how long the bird has been free, someone else could have had the bird and he may have only been free for a matter of months.

The bird is very lucky that he fell in the hands of a very nice gamekeeper who respects BOP, he catches about two a month and lets them go.

We have offered next year when we do the show for his son to come over and into the ring and fly one of the Hawks as his son is bird of prey mad.

It may of not been so lucky as was on pheasant shoot estate.

Hi Steve, no. I'll meet him for the first time when he's able to collect his hawk.
Best wishes,

Wow !

If that bird has been out the whole time then that is one hell of a hack !

May take abit of manning down I would guess but should be good at hunting once done !

Hi RenÚ.
I appreciate the sentiment, but the gos is close rung and wearing anklets, so he belonged to somebody.
The owner may indeed to liberate him, I don't know. But it's his choice not mine, and I'm not at liberty to take decisions like that on his behalf.
If I lost a hawk that was later recovered by someone else, I like to think that they would take every care of her, respecting both her and me.
Best wishes,
Tony.

He's a wonderful hawk, with perfect manners and the temperament of the worldly wise wonder that he is.

He is a nice bird and if the owner had not come forward I'd have loved the opportunity to fly him. He is one lucky owner
