Good one John, stand by for the negatives. Where exactly was this?


Comment by Mick on 22nd November 2013 at 09:03
Harry to me it looks like it was sat on somebody's hand.

When we went to Keilder Dam in Northumberland, we visited the Raptor Centre. There, I was able to have a hawk land on a gauntlet on my hand. it is a wonderful experience to be so close to such a creature.

Which one Mick?

That bird is a long way from home for an adolescent. It's home being the desert southwest of the U S and Mexico.

It belongs to a friend of mine [Ian]I photographed it was over the rugby club. He tells me when is fully grown it will have a wing span of 4Ft. Its so nice to see it flying free, it follows him everywhere. Its so nice to see it fly back to him

What a brilliant photo of a beautiful bird. There is a gentleman in Abram who has a bird of prey and I often see him with it on Abram Park; it is wonderful to see it in flight. My daughter lives on Lewis and often sees eagles flying past her house, What magnificent creatures these wild birds are. Thankyou for posting.
