Drone bird of prey trialled at Southampton Airport

A bird-like drone is being flown at Southampton Airport to try and scare other birds away from plane engines during take-off and landing.

The robotic bird of prey looks and moves like the real thing, but is remotely controlled from the ground by a drone pilot.

The innovative creation aims to keep runways safer and reduce flight delays.
