    Great capture and save. You were extremely lucky, as was the bird.

    yes there were another 3 or 4 hovering around, so I brought the quad down quickly.

    thanks guys, I think it was more luck than anything else, perhaps they saw the quad as threat in their area.

    Yeah. Wildlife can be nasty. Same thing happened to me last year
