Wonderful, Jonny.....
That we can access this is truly remarkable!!!!!

But, oh dear, reading the text to the Grey Falcon, one is saddened.....,however, those days there was no other way of "getting your bird" and the skins provided the necessary material for studying. This was the case world-wide. I would hope that a lot of field observations were also conducted, without 'bagging' the bird - they must have done!
