HI i was wondering has anyone lost a kestrel or hawk type bird around the prenton area by cartridge world, as this morning {sunday 2/10/11} aprox 10.45 AM as we were looking out of our living room window we saw a kestrel/hawk bird hovering above our flat. I remarked to ann how we never see this type of bird around here but as we were watching it i could clearly see the bird had the small strap/lead type? item coming from its talons. By the time i went to get my binoculas to what type of bird? it was gone, take care mike...ann..x..

Sure it wasn't a sparrowhawk? Pretty common in Preston/Oxton.

Dave the Warden at Eastham Country Park might be one to get in touch with as I'm sure his brother has birds of prey think If not, he'll know who has as they have them for Family days sometimes.

Hope that helps.

If its actively hovering and its wild then its 99% a kestrel, however if its got Jesses on then it could be (almost) anything but as mentioned above kestrels are reasonabley common in captivity. ALternatively it could even be a cross breed.

If it is either of the latter and it has paired up (in winter!?!) then it needs to be recaptured as a) its somebody's loved pet and b) it could dilute the gene pool of the wild birds
