A surprise visit from a hawk.
I thought I had a Buzzard flying low over my house today, which is quite unusual where I live. I've seen them soaring high on the thermals, but not low at speed. When I looked out of the window, sat on the rooftop opposite was a Harris Hawk. They are not wild here, but can be seen in many falconry centres up and down the country. It made my day, but I still had to let someone know that this bird was around. I have let the relevant people know and hopefully it will be back with it's owner soon.
What an awesome bird. You can see the ring on it's left leg.
I wouldn't get many birds on my feeders if these were around all the time.
