    Training a goshawk

    She is an author of “H is for hawk” and also a lecturer of English at a top university... To be fair the book is a cracking read, although it has a lot to do with her fathers death and how she grieved - it does tell the story of how she hadn’t trained a Gos for over 10 yrs but fell back in love with it, describes a good chunk of training, fear of losing the bird, hunting and even poaching with the Gos - well worth a read
  3. Sunset at St Mary's lighthouse on Sunday, I'm no landscape photographer and no filters were used - I do love how the rocks, pools and seaweed had a golden cast over them.

    Any takers ???

    This may be of interest to one of you lot. Someone I know has 2 tickets in a corporate box for the England v Belgium game Thur 28th June. He paid £500 each including flights but he didn't realise when he bought them months ago that it was going to be the same day as his wedding! If you are interested, he is looking for someone to take his place. It's at Skipton Registry Office, at 4pm. The bride's name is Nicola -- she's 5'4", about 8 stone, quite pretty, has her own income and is a really good cook.

    Cuckoo's Calling

    I love the call of the cuckoo, makes it even more special that they're only here a few months max, such a distinct and iconic call... You done well to see a couple pal, wonder if they were male and female pairing up..
  8. Amazing footage of an eagle stealing a rabbit from a fox

    Good luck in finding the best/host birds mate.. I've seen behaviour when the males have picked up small objects as if tonne presenting to the females - amazing. Fantastic birds to hear Calling but when you see them or photograph them it just steps up a level.
  13. Here's a one form this morning, 5 males chasing each other all over the place - amazing to watch and listen... 1st of a few images i managed to capture
