Trafalgar Hawk

© Licensed to London News Pictures. 13/03/2012. London, UK. Wayne feeds lizzie. Wayne Parsons flies Lizzie, aged 3, the American Harris Hawk in London's Trafalgar Square today. Wayne and Lizzie are employed by the Greater London Authority to control the pigeon population in the famous square. Lizzie was reared from birth by Wayne but not 'imprinted', meaning she retains her natural ability to hunt. Lizzie only catches 5 or 6 pigeons a year as the very site of her scares them away.
