Eagles, Kites & Vultures


Falco Columbarius

​The Merlin is almost the smallest UK raptor, just pipped to the post by the Musket (male Sparrowhawk) This hunter of open moorland is a songbird’s living nightmare; with its high speed attack, ability to turn incredibly tightly and favoured low level surprise approach, this bird specialist can out manoeuvre just about anything with feathers! A classic Falconry bird with its lark hawking flights being something of legend with falconers dating back to medieval times.

 Gerry our ‘jack’ Merlin (male) is just 5oz in weight when he’s putting on a thrilling lure flying display”
