  1. Another day feeding up on a carcass after flying. Some nice soaring today!
  2. Been flying him for a few day's now and introduced to the dragged dead rabbit. I think he likes it, lol!
  3. On the LR 41 you must sent a grid reference date and time of each kill, this only applies as part of the falconry license as you are only granted a certain number of birds to kill. This doesn't apply to the general license. Its all a load of bollox to keep people in jobs, totally unnecessary.
  4. To my knowledge you don't need a license to take ground game with a trained bop. This entire system is laughable. I had the A41 for gulls and corvids, it took them almost all season to grant my license. When I kept ringing asking what the hold up was I was told my boss can't decide how many birds to let you have. When I was finally granted the license almost at the end of the season, I had to report back every single kill with date ,time and grid reference. Also I said that the birds were causing a nuisance on my permission, I was then told that you cannot apply for a falconry license to deal
  5. Thank you! You bred the hybrids? Which way around did you do them and what sort of weights did they make?
  6. A bit of training today and introduced to the lure.
  7. Thanks! I will keep you posted. I have flown a few redtails over the years, great birds on squirrels. I know two people flying males from this pairing and one flying a female, they are all pleased with them, having the good traits of the Harris with the extra grunt of the redtail. Hopefully should make a nice all rounder. This one definitely has the stubbornness of a redtail, lol.
  8. Yes he is...........I have been wondering if anyone realised what he was lol.
  9. Yes I just fancied something a bit different hence the hybrid!
  10. Cheers mate, I've flown several redtails over the years, fancied a change. Something to keep things interesting!

    New Project

    Out for first manning session, getting him used to his surroundings and the dog running around.
  12. No different to manning any other hawk!
  13. You'd be surprised the female that I moulted out last season had virtually no full tail feathers when I bought her. I turned her loose in the aviary and she used to bounce off the walls now and then. It makes you cringe, but she managed a nice clean moult. I think when the feathers have done a year they then become more dried out and brittle, and are more prone to break. The new growth will be more supple and flexible.
  14. Sounds like you'd be better off totally covering it in except the roof. Goshawks usually pick a spot on the wall and bounce off the same place each time. Some people that I know have had success in putting some astroturf or matting on the contact points. I just clad the area off with polycarbonate and that worked for mine.
  15. Dug up this old thread, is anyone flying this cross at the minute?
  16. I would just gradually drop weight a bit until it will jump on glove to be fed then secure jesses and off you go!
  17. If you feed a varied quality diet there wouldn't be any need to feed supplements.
  18. The final 2 accidents of the season whilst exercising. Putting her down for the moult now, finishing on #70
  19. Breaking the rules from high in a tree top flushed by the dog. #68
  20. Another quick one thanks to the ferret #67
  21. Always a few on Birdtrader.
  22. Out for a quick one #66
  23. Another accident whilst tree flying #65
