I have thought long and hard about posting these images, but here goes.

The nearest village to Titchmarsh LNR is Aldwincle where the reserve car park is sited.

An Aldwincle resident is a falconer and can be seen regularly exercising his Harris Hawk over fields in the locality, the bird is extremely well looked after but it is of course a captive bird and a sensitive subject therefore for some. 

Having said that it is also a magnificent raptor so last time I saw them I pulled over for a chat and took a few images, the bird also perched quite happily on the back of a wooden bench and is a bit of a poser.

Apparently rabbits are its main prey species and from my own observations the population in the area is currently increasingly visible.
