Thanks Steve and Kevin.

Judging from the depressed area where the leg should be, he was probably born without it. Probably survives because he does not need his feet to find food. Appeared happy enough the 2nd time I was at that place, flying around, chasing others with food etc.

Nice shots, shame for the bird only having the one leg though.

Thanks G, Josh, John.

Yes pity about the leg but he has the will to fight against the odds and seems to be doing fine.

Hopefully will see him again.
