A falconer’s home bred goshawk which went missing on Thursday was found unharmed on Saturday after internet appeals from its owner.

Poppet, who has a metre wingspan, took flight from Rougham Hill after weakening a knot on its jesses (leg straps).

Her owner Tim Spafford appealed through Facebook and on the Bury Free Press website for people to look out for her. She was found in Shakers Lane on Saturday.
