A bird of prey from Warwick Castle who flew away during a show on Thursday 6 September is still at large despite falconers getting close to him several times.The White Tailed Sea Eagle named Stan, which has a wing span of 6 and a half feet, was initially found five days after going missing in Leamington Spa after viewers saw the story on Central News reporting sightings in Leamington Spa.However despite trying to temp Stan down from trees he flew away from handlers and was not spotted again for five days until on Tuesday (18 September) a farmer reported seeing him eating a dead sheep in Daventry near Badby.
Now one of Stans feathered friends from the castle, Sidney, the bald headed eagle is helping to temp Stan back home.
Chris O'Donnell the bird handler says Stan has just found himself lost and it is not a bid for freedom. He is hoping that recruiting Sidney the bald headed eagle to help will see Stan home in no time.
Hopefully Stan will join his friend Sidney for lunch and will find himself back home at Warwick Castle after his long Midlands adventure.
