PC BOB Searle is keeping an eagle eye out for his rural parishioners.

Yesterday he visited the falconry centre at Millets Farm in Fyfield, near Abingdon, to put up some burglar-deterrents.

The brightly-coloured red and yellow County Watch signs are designed to remind visitors to keep a vigilant eye out in more isolated spots, like the falconry centre.

Pc Searle, pictured with Harris hawk Ruby, said: “The signs act as a deterrent to ne’er-do-wells who prey on people.”

To join the scheme should call Thames Valley Police on 101.
