Merlin 

(Falco columbarius) - 'Lancaster'

 

The UK's smallest bird of prey, this compact, dashing falcon has a relatively long, square-cut tail and rather broad-based pointed wings, shorter than those of other falcons. Its wingbeat tends to be rapid with occasional glides, wings held close to the body.

In winter, the UK population increases as most of the Icelandic breeding birds migrate to our warmer climate.

Our little 'Lancaster' hatched in 2019  is a Jack which means a Male Merlin much smaller than the Female they also show sexual dimorphism not just in size but colour too, the Jacks ar a are blue-grey above, with a grey head and orangey-cream underparts that are streaked in black. Females are mainly grey-brown, with dark streaking underneath.
