'It looked like a pterodactyl!' - Video shows stunning bearded vulture in flight

The lammergeier spotted in Wales last Thursday was filmed by local man Dale Kedward.

When I first saw it it was right on the end of a cliff.

I looked at straight away and thought it looks like a vulture but thought it can't be!

I took the footage as best I could. The wingspan was huge, and I knew it was something. When I looked at the bird coming over my head, it was like a pterodactyl!

It looked like it could have picked my dog!

It's believed to be the first sighting of a wild lammergeier in the UK.

The bird is typically found in mountainous areas in Europe like the Alps and the Pyrenees .
