Harris Hawk

The following shots of a Harris Hawk were taken at the Raptor World Bird of Prey centre which is located within the Scottish Deer centre near Cupar in Fife.  If you do happen to cross paths with this impressive raptor then it is likely an escapee from captivity as they are normally resident in the USA and South America.  The in-flight shots are of the Hawk attempting to catch its food.

Wild Wolves

Here are a number of shots of the resident pack of wolves at the Scottish Deer Centre in Cupar, Fife.   Heavily persecuted for killing live stock, the last wild wolf in Scotland was killed in 1745 and from that day the number of deer grew out of control.  Nowadays humans have effectively replaced the wolf in culling the deer in order to manage their numbers.
