had a wander up north yesterday,, met up with nobby, he groaned when i mentioned the steep farm lol,, to be honest im getting used to it,, i just love being up there ... its one of the few farms we have up there with a bit of high ground to let the dogs work..

the first warren produced a dig,, luckily we only had 3-4 all day ,, most rabbits were bolting well enough,, the dogs cought a few as well hunting up,, had a few good marks as well of venus,,, mind you one set she marked i could here the rabbits thumping underground.. so no big deal realy Posted Image

i filmed quite a bit of stuff , but on the little compact camera its not the best,, one particular warren was a strange afare,, it concisted of 4 small sets all close together but seperate, and each about 3 holes, and each set on a little hump no more than ten yards between them,, and we knocked 9 rabbits out of here in quik time,, 2 were dug ,, but just a spit of soil.

one nice bit was venus marking in the bracken on point,, then a second later dived in only to compleatly miss, and end up facing the wrong way , as the rabbit made a compleate getaway ,, it was comicle realy to see here jumping about looking for it,, and ignoring our shouts ,, she will lern its only her second time ferreting.. all in all a cracking day that goes so fast,, mind you i never got up there til 10 30 , and it was 11 am befor we got up on the high ground

lost a rabbit of the game carryer as well, should have been 31,, but only 30 when we got down to the motor. heres a few pics and vids

theres a strange clicking sound on the vids , and im fecked if i know what it is

Nice one. The weather is a bit different to here in Lincolnshire. Round Louth the fields are still white over with snow.

I look like death warmed up in that pic Tomo lol mind you i was puffing like a steam train climbing up them banks to the tops but once up there i enjoyed the day nice to see the dogs work for the rabbits and the ferrets grafted hard shifting the rabbits in that bigger warren when we where making our way down was nice to see good a number of rabbits running in for another day.
