lots of things to take on board Minka flying longwings. good telemetry, good open flying ground, a undertanding on techniques and how longwings fly and its quarry base, conditioning Etc.

 

If you want to fly Game there's alot that need to be learned for this style of flight, teaching a bird to wait on from a pitch takes time and skill on the falconers behalf, some birds are more natural than others but its the job of the falconer to use tried and tested methods to acheive this.

 

Ground quarry isn't the natural method of Hunting for a Peregrine, I'm sure the odd one in the wild has taken ground quarry but I would think very seldom.

 

not really a first bird mate :thumbs:.

Stick with a HH as your first hawk buddy-trained and hunted well,you'll catch far more than I do with my Gos that's for sure!

Oh but if you do choose a Gos-i'm not coming to help you look for it when you lose it,(cos lose it, you will). :laugh:

there's a few down the aviaries being Parent reared Furgle which is nice to see, I love seeing the birds being reared which a reward for myself after the effort thats been put in :thumbs:.

 

My heads not thinking about flying anything at the moment mate, can't say I'm over enthusiastic just yet but I'll see how I feel later. I have a nice little male Gos from last year which I might give a buzz again but as you know flying a birds takes up alot of time and commitment, not sure I can give that anymore.....

Good to see the parent reared birds doing well I personally think there is way too many imprints doing nothing where there should be alot of parent reared doing it properly and hunting lol :thumbs:

 

 

Hope you do get out even if its half a season mate get out there even a bit of bunny bashing lol

over the years I tried tracking back the blood lines Alex and concluded they originated from old welsh stock. I picked up a tiercel in 92 from a big breeder at the time in cleveland, this was paired in 95 with a 91 turner female.

 

that old pair bonded lovely alex straight away and produced for many years with my old tiercel dieing at 16, I kept females back from him over the years taking the imprint route and also new blood a different pairing I was in partnership on.

 

we have done everything possible to P/R everything alex apart from two, it would be nice to hear of them being flown in this country as I have resisted sending any abroad :thumbs:..

 

atb, Tony
