great bustard (bird)


These are some of the heaviest birds capable of flight. They used to live in the British Isles but were eradicated by hunting in the 19th century. Today populations in Europe and Asia have been used to re-introduce them to Salisbury Plain.

This object is on display at RAMM in the In Fine Feather gallery.
