I've just done the returns for Raptor Rescue, gathering all data on birds of prey through my hands for 2011.
There were 31 Tawny's, 11 Sparrowhawks,and a smattering of owls, Long Eared and Short Eared included.Also the odd Kite, 2 Peregrine, Marsh Harrier and one or two Buzzards just for a bit of variety, near enough 70 birds in all. I've a fondness for birds of prey and Raptor Rescue is a charity run to help injured birds of prey find professional care with a strong desire to get them back to the wild.
One of the Barn Owls looking stunning and ready for the off,
always the best part of looking after wildlife.
