Save the Falcon.

Nobody gets more annoyed and fed up than I do about cold callers, be it over the phone, at the front door, through the letterbox, or people stopping you in the town centre begging on behalf of charities, also people persistently banging on at the same subject repeatedly over and over again. However, with regard to the latter I'm afraid I offer no apology and intend to continue to highlight the subject of bird persecution and slaughter occasionally on Birds2blog.

But this time I'm not going to launch into a lengthy rant, but would ask you to take a look at the webpage linked here, but please be warned, the video is 3.5 minutes long, but its more important I warn you....if you're easily upset I'd suggest you just pass it by and enjoy the couple of photographs that follow. 

If it didn't know before the whole world knows about this now, and it must stop. The subject here is an attempt to Save The Amur Falcon ....PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION.

And the couple of photographs to follow....


Kestrel Warren Baker

A smart little falcon the Kestrel, this one a female. Thanks Warren....Excellent.


Merlin Paul Foster

And another smart little falcon, my most favourite the Merlin. I've watched these amazing birds lock on to prey in the air at every twist and turn at 60 mph with missile precision. Thanks Paul....Excellent.

I'D SOONER BE BIRDING....but not until Monday I'm afraid.
