He is eating on the glove at 1 lb11 oz but he's still Beeing a wee bit jumpy baiting away and hanging upside down on the glove and absolutely no way will he step up for food yet he's off like a missile the minit I approach him lol but I think he has a bit of weight to lose before he comes to me . As well he hoods good some times and others it's like no way and hangs upside down

one or two to be honest I'm happy just to be out flying my bird my last saker took rabbits and pheasant so just going to gee this one a bash at crows if he's crap then tuff for me

these birds of prey can they be trusted with the likes of lambs in a lambing feild when hunting crows,rabbitts etc,am just curious as i dont have any experience what so ever with them,atb wf
