    You may well be! You may! You have all the right to be over the moon for these.
    That condor must have been ENORMOUS.
    I saw one ... hey, actually got an in-flight-pic I think... but mine are ever so far from being this good :cry: .... But that's how I know how huge they are!!

    Cheers buddy

    These were taken at The Hawk Conservancy which is near Andover on the A303. It is also without doubt the best value day out you can have!! it's less than £9.00 to get in and they do 3 flying displays and you can wear a glove and have a Harris Hawk land on your hand !!

    I've been doing wildlife longer than planes but I've only recently started getting good at it ( planes travelling at 600mph are simple compaired to a bird flying at say 50mph )
