A falcon which had gone missing from a farm has been found. 

Grace, a white gyr saker falcon, escaped from Marsh Farm in South Woodham Ferrers between 10.30am and 11am on Wednesday. 

The 12-year-old bird of prey flew over the river in the direction of Rayleigh and Hullbridge but has now been found on the edge of a field not far away from Marsh Farm. 

She has been returned to the farm.
