My mate who deals with my foxes shoots pigeons and flies a Harris hawk to deter pigeons from places like football stadiums. It's part of his pest control company (although, mostly I think he just likes hawks)

Harris Hawk is likely your best bet. They're cheap and common, so someone should have one close by and will likely fly it so as to have somewhere to train. You will probably have to put up with it being stuck up a tree now again. They are notoriously grumpy. I'll ask him what sort of network there is to contact people.

(I'm still itching to put an eagle owl in the chicken house and give foxy a shock. Apparently, the Warwickshire hunt use them to finish off the foxes they hound and hunt legally. I don't know if it's a myth though and I'm not especially fond of them the rest of the time)
