Haughty hawk goes flyabout at Cheshire Oaks

Jack the hawk ruffles a few feathers at McArthurGlen outlets

A hawk called Jack was the centre of attention at Cheshire Oaks at the weekend

A hawk called Jack caused a slight flap at Cheshire Oaks.

The raptor is part of the Conway based Coastal Hawks team which frequently visits the centre.

He  was settling down for a day out entertaining visitors to the busy outlet village when the view from a nearby shop roof caught his fancy.

Jack escaped the attentions of  his falconer friends and settled down on the ridge keeping an imperious eye on his keepers and the crowds beneath.

The hawk was quite happy on the roof perhaps deciding on the next shop to visit for Mrs Hawk’s Christmas present  or keeping an eye out for Santa.

Falconers from Coastal Hawks  made vain efforts to tempt Jack back onto his perch.

“He’s always doing it,” groaned one.

“He’ll be down when he’s hungry.”

True to form Jack decided he’d had enough of the windy roost ruffling his feathers  and popped back down for his elevenses.
