    Well took her out again today, a weighing 2.2.6 Still not a bad response but not as instant, i cast her up into a tree and started bushing, a hen pheasant broke cover to flight and she set of after it but only half heartedly really i put this down to a slight rise in weight, that was our only chance today but tommorow the ferrets will be coming out so she wil have a better chance, but today she was following on beautifully and flying a bit more so her cobfidence on the wing was a bit better, fingers crossed for tommorow, atb Mike

    Well today was the day, and i still have a harris!!!lol i decided to take her to a local wood that normally holds rabbits as the breeze was still quite strong, got into the wood and cast her up into a tree called her back and response was instant so of we went to find some rabbits, cast her up again and started bushing but before i new it she was of the branch and away, i just caught sight of a squirrel scurrying along the floor about 50 yards away, she was gaining and gaining, at this point a part of me was willing her to miss it incase of a bite and the other part i wanted her to for her first kill, it went past a tree as she looped round the other side, with held breath i watched her miss it by mm, back to the bushing... cast her up again and started bushing, after about 20 minutes of working through briars and rhodedendron a hare got upand of she went again, it just made it to really thick cover so she threw up into the air and landed in a tree, beat more of the wood but with her on my fist and nothing else but was extremely pleased for her first time, there waspheasants everywhere and could of had a few but she wouldnt even entertain them so some work needed on that, so just took her into the field and flw her back to me into the wind to work on some fitness and give her her rations, fingers crossed she will nail something tommorow, atb Mike

    Hi guys, went out with her today, her weight had dropped slightly to 2.2.4 and her responsewas yet again instant, and even coming to the un garnished glove before id walked back the length of the creance, went out ladst night and caught a rabbit with the lurchers that i tried her on today and she hit it hard and really gripping it, i let her have a feed of it, so everything just semmed to fall into place, shes got to be ready as soon as i put her on the fence her heads down and shes wanting to come, its a if you can see her thinking, i believe the only thing holding her back now is me!! Tommorow i think is the day, so il let you no how i get on!! Atb Mike

    Hi guys, when i said perch i meant, i am using a fence thats in the back field, i have been at work all day today but managed to get out with her when i got back and very much the same, i am keeping her at a steady weight of 2.2.6 and her response is instant every time, i cant help thinking shes getting bored of the creance, as somtimes she flyes straight then others she curves round to me changing it up a bit, i dont think shes to far of, cant wait to get her hunting as her foot powers absoloutely awsome, not had chance with dummy yet but gonna get that out tommorow, atb Mike

    Took lucky to the back field today for some more creance work, her response was the bestyet at a weight of 2.2.6, she was coming instantly everytime even sometimes coming before she was called (which she didnt get rewarded for) half way through her rations we had a break and did some jump ups, then straight back on the creance to finish of, ver pleased with her today best day on the creance yet. Just one question, i am walking her back to her perch everytime, should i be doing this or should i make her fly?? Atb Mike
