A baby bird of prey has gone missing from a pest control business.

Bentley, a Gyr Saker who only hatched this year, went missing on Sunday, October 28 while training in Snetterton.

The falcon hybrid is wearing a transmitter but his owners are unable to get a signal.

Barbara Royale, who runs the national Independent Bird Register, said that anyone who spots Bentley should not attempt to touch him without training but should take a photo and contact the Register on 01617 905613.

She said: “The Gyr Saker is quite a common bird, often used in pest control. He may come down for food but you need to know what you’re doing.”
