This amazing bird was very different to the Owls, although much heavier than the Eagle Owl he landed much lighter. He had to be tied to the post by a line as the only thing on his mind was flying up high and attacking the wild Buzzard above. Rooks gathered high above, circling, ready to mob him if he tried. A fantastic day and one I will not forget.
The day was really blowing a Gail, But unlike the Owls the Eagle loved the wind and was a much stronger flier. A large gust of wind blow the Eagle off course slightly as he came in to land and with talons that size, you had to move fast to avoid a trip to the hospital.
