  4. Just put ad on bird trader it will go if its priced right, and its free to advertise.
  5. Cheers mate, yes plenty going on at the minute. Always busy!
  6. He turned out to be an awesome hawk with exceptional manners!
  7. I once had a redtail that was left in seclusion aviary until February. He took food on day ten, I was starting to get a bit concerned lol.
  8. Some cracking flights today. He's starting to show some style. A nice big buck rabbit. #7
  9. Very high winds and heavy showers today, testing conditions. His first double in the bag. #6.
  10. Popped out for a quick one. The dog had to work really hard to shift this one out of thick gorse. Kill 3.
  11. Thanks mate Thanks, not difficult to keep no more so than any other hawk.
  12. A day flying in challenging conditions, and finally kill #2 in the bag!
  13. Hi Kev, do you have dogs at home? If so you want to man her and have your dog out when you feed/ fly her. At the moment if she's not killing she is just learning what is and isn't on the menu. A lot of Harris's hawks aren't good with dogs unless brought up with them around, as their main predator in the wild is the Coyote.
  14. Thanks, and yes hopefully be OK now we've got the ball rolling!
  15. Started the ball rolling. First kill in the bag, off a nice point.
  16. Another day feeding up on a carcass after flying. Some nice soaring today!
  17. Been flying him for a few day's now and introduced to the dragged dead rabbit. I think he likes it, lol!
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. Thank you! You bred the hybrids? Which way around did you do them and what sort of weights did they make?
  21. A bit of training today and introduced to the lure.
  22. 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.
  23. Yes he is...........I have been wondering if anyone realised what he was lol.
  24. Yes I just fancied something a bit different hence the hybrid!
