A man is appealing for help in finding his missing bird of prey.

Don Mckay has made the appeal after his American redtail hawk, which went missing two days ago.

The bird, which is similar in size to a buzzard, went missing from the Welland Vale Road area of Corby and was last seen flying in the direction of the Shire Horse pub.

Mr Mckay is keen to hear from anyone who has seen the bird, which is used for falconry.

Anyone who sees the bird of prey, which has leather straps on his legs, is asked to call Mr Mckay on 07547 235695.
