Paco, the Chilean Blue Eagle, disappeared in the Wem area after giving his keepers at Shropshire Falconry the slip as the aviary was being cleaned.

But he was spotted in a nearby field at about 7pm on Friday.

Shropshire Falconry said: "We used field craft skills to work out which tree he was perched in.

"He flew down when he saw us lay some food."
