Stunning action flight image of the two juveniles, Shalu. Were they honing their fighting techniques, or just playing?

Hi Mike, they are identification tags.

These birds have been re-introduced to parts of the UK having almost become extinct, so its important to monitor their progress.

From just a few pairs 50 years ago, the current UK population now stands at an estimated 1800 breeding pairs.

Thank you Glyn. I appreciate the info.

Nice one, Shalu. I'm guessing you pulled that missing tail feather out as it flew over you. :-P :p

Very nice RTH capture, Mike! Looked like it was flying pretty low. How do you know it was looking for squirrels and not gophers? :lol:

Incredible good shot.....

I'm getting carpal tunnel from punching the like button so much.
The quality of images lately just blows me away.
Thanks to all dedicated enthusiasts who take the time to go out and get them for our continued enjoyment.
