    Very good C/U of an "extremely rare African Marshal Hawk Eagle" called 'James'. M/S of the eagle sitting on the arm of an elderly man called Captain Knight who brought the bird over from South Africa. Knight says that he has taught the bird to fly loose. M/S and L/S shot of Knight letting the bird loose. Good slow motion shot of the enormous bird landing on a tree stump. He takes off again and flies to the arm of Knight. Several more shots of the bird in action including good slow motion shot of the bird landing on a dead hare.
