Not one for the Devon bird list

If any one follows the Plymouth media you may have noted that a Striated Cara Cara went AWOL from Sparkwell Zoo on the 29th March, yesterday Devon Birder Dave Pakes was on his way out on a birding trip above South Brent as he passed through Bloody Pool Cross he saw a large raptor that he was unable to identify sitting on the roadside gate.

To cut a long story short I was able to catch the bird which I recognised as a Striated Cara Cara and it has now been returned to its owner, so if you have seen an unusual bird of prey between the respective locations you now have the answer.
