... walking around with a bird of prey. I didn't like to look closely as I had an altercation with some ravens this morning. Is there a display in the area today?

We have a guy who does this by Guy's hospital, but it's to scare the pidgeons away i believe? Don't know if it's the same guy....

Was he carrying a vacuum cleaner as well? I've heard there's an 80's tribute band playing there tonight.....
'Hawk-Kestrel man hoovers in the dark.'

Ooooooh, sorry.

Kas-75 - might make sense. He looked like he was out with his pet rather than trying to attract the public's interest, so you're probably right

I often used to pass him around 7am on Queen's Walk. Think he is the one they use in Trafalgar Square to get rid of the "flying rats" they have there!

LOL Chalkey!

It's a red kite aka chickenhawk; short wings to operate well in piazzas. That one was mobbed by crows then seagulls.

As I was driving along South Carriage Drive in Hyde Park last week, there was a guy standing outside the new apartment complex next to the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, # 1 Hyde Park, with a large bird of prey on his wrist.
It was not the guy in Mark's shots, and the bird was about the size of the eagle that adorns the roof of the U.S. embassy.
He must have had a strong arm to support it.
