A BABY falcon has been rescued and reunited with its owner after surviving an amazing 170-mile journey.

Fifteen-week-old Lucy was lost in Lancashire last week after she was attacked by crows while out exercising with her owner.

Devastated Barry Haughton assumed his beautiful Lanner falcon must be dead.

But five days later, in a remarkable stroke of luck, a sharp-eyed animal protection officer spotted a famished young falcon devouring a pigeon in a park in Holyrood Park, Edinburgh.

Mairi Stewart caught the bird and was astonished to find ID tags leading to the small village of Cockerham near Preston.

Today a delighted Barry, 70, travelled to Dalhousie Castle Falconry, near Bonnyrigg, Midlothian, to be reunited with his beloved bird.
