Peregrine falcon missing in Wickham Heath

More news, no ads


A falconer has put out an appeal after losing one of his birds in the Wickham Heath area.

The 2-year-old peregrine falcon - described as a female with a dark-pink plumage - was last sighted on November 12, the same day it went missing.

She was wearing various pieces of equipment when she went missing, including a visible tracking device.

Owner Jon Bennett is a Wash Common man, and he often flies the bird in Goldwell Park, Newbury.

He says that the GPS battery has now died, and that he is concerned for the falcon's welfare, as it has not been trained to hunt.

He told the Newbury Weekly News: "At some point she's going to have to eat, so, once that happens, the chances of me getting her back become less and less."

All potentially relevant information - including sightings - should be provided to Mr Bennett on 07596 800219.
