Glad to see this topic is still attracting interest and in doing so either putting people off or encouraging them to keep one of these superb birds, i won't say own as we have never felt we owned either stella or ruby .. we sort of get on together !!!.
As for the past year it's been for want of a better word "trying" what with one thing and another, at times we thought of placing ruby with someone who could do her justice as we were stuggling to put the hours into her during the flying season, this then reminded me of the question "do i need to fly a bird of prey" well in the short term no.. ruby's always been well fed, watered and bowed out everyday but it's a bit like owning a 1098 ducati and never riding it, also who would she go to !!!!!!!!! no idea, note i never said sell her... no chance if we ever did part company with ruby she would go free of charge including her telemetry and everthing else at well over £1200 to a well placed home,as tight as things are. Anyway things are sorting themselves out rubys here to stay and droping feathers like crazy... so we look forward to the coming season in these uncertain times. Yours in sport dad & liam.
