Hi Mate
Has the Harris been recaptured yet?.I live in wakefield but get out Ponte',Cas, Feath, way with my job and squeeze in a lot of recceing for pest control duties so will keep an eye out.I also have experience in recapturing lost raptors so a few questions if it is still at large. Was the bird hunted regularly? was it at flying weight when lost?, what was the bird fed on while captive?,when and where was the last confirmed sighting?.
If it has been or gets recaptured give us a heads up.Mike B.....

Just in case the little fella fancies extending his life experience and heading towards Harrogate i'll keep my eye out. The area you describe him from would be about 1/2 hour direct flight to my area.
