PIGEON SHOOTING

Peter Theobald

No matter what the RSPB would have us believe, all birds of prey are opportunists, and whilst Red Kites may predominantly only eat carrion, there is no doubt they will not pass up the chance to take vulnerable live prey, as evidenced recently when a photographer caught a buzzard taking a rare Grey Phalarope.

    excellent reply, i believe the RSPB are responsible for alot of misconceptions regarding raptors,having worked as a keeper since i left school 5 years ago, nothing a bird of prey does would suprise me anymore, ive seen it all, from buzzards hunting pheasant poults to red kites taking fully grown grey partridge, as Peter said in his reply ALL raptors are oppertunists and they wont turn thier noses up at anything.
