- It's not a snake I'm afraid.
Harris Hawk for certain. Very easy bird to use for vermin control, and one of the very few that hunt in family flocks.
Buzzards and kites are scavengers, not hunters like hawks and falcons, so unsuitable for vermin control, their size makes them unsuitable, what with having a five-foot wingspan n’all.

Definitely a Harris Hawk, it’s the breed they let you lose with on beginners hawking days.
I had one one day that made a kill and sat there proudly waiting for it’s bit of baby chick as a reward for catching me a…….. newt!
Efficient killing machines, but a bit dim at times. Do they originate from America?Posted 4 years agokonagirlMember
buzzards are referred to as endangered species or similar
Err… They’re not. They are on the green list for conservation and are known to be the most common bird of prey in the UK. All birds of prey are protected by law, since 1954, is that what you are referring to?
^ Fantastic pic of the sea eagle. I would love to see one in the UK. Had a sparrowhawk sat in our garden the other day, great sight.Posted 4 years ago
