goshawk/spars don't hunt by quartering there high speed contour hugging surprise attackers,its hard to tell from the pic but it looks like a hen harrier/osprey or even escapee redtail :11: ...

The birders were going daft one day as i was tramping across a moore lol they started on me i told them politly i didnt have enough time to talk as i was going to shoot my dinner and if this caused me to cross the path of some daft feckin bird so feckin what :11:
