Murphy - Male (Jack) Merlin

Hatch date: 22/5/2011

Murphy is our star demonstration falcon. He is an amazing flyer and is thrilling to watch. James loves Murphy and flys him pretty much every day. He goes along with Chris's display team, but James is the one to fly him, he's certainly one to watch. He is also a perfect model for photography workshops.
