p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Selection from the International Birds of Prey Centre


Here's a few from the international birds of prey centre in Newent, UK. I was lucky enough to visit there on one of the very few sunny days we've had so far this summer.

The centre provides a great opportunity to get up close to a range of birds of prey and they also do three flying displays each day with four or five birds flown each time. Great for practicing those BIF shots.

C&C most welcome as always, hope you enjoy...

No.1 Kestrel:







No.2 Indian Tawny Eagle:







No.3 Lanner Falcon entereing a stoop, these guys are fast!







No.4 Hybrid (I didn't check which two species this is a cross of):







No.5 Juvenile Bald Eagle. On most shots I decided not to clone out the restraints that the birds are fitted with as I'm happy to show them as they are seen at the centre, I appreciate this is not to everyone's taste.







No.6 Talons







No.7 Black Kite







No.8 Egyptian Vulture (a.k.a "Pharaoh's Chicken"):







No.9 Lanner Falcon







No.10 Goshawk







No.11 The juvenile Bald Eagle again.







No.12 King Vulture (shot through wire mesh):







Thanks for looking,

Paul.

A varied and excellent set of images, Paul. While the bifs are very nice, my picks would be the first and the last shots.

Great set of raptors Paul. I love the first and last ones and then #4. I believe #4 has some falcon in him, he looks kind of peregrinny. It seems to have the tooth in the upper mandible, very common in peregrines and other falcons. TFS

Great work Paul, all of these are beauties. I for one am glad you left the jesses on, there is an honesty within that. The King Vulture is truly spectacular, what a shot

Nice shots, I too like the King Vulture. #4 looks like a Gyr/Saker hybrid.
