Falklands bird of prey (1 Viewer)


Stop Brexit!
Nothing in HBW suggesting they take prey anything like this size normally - the usual prey (90% of diet) is small rodents. Nor any mention of co-operative hunting by pairs. Well worth getting this sighting published!

A few pictures I have taken over the years of Variable Hawks killing Upland Geese and a non native Hare.
