Managed to slip out for a quickie after work. Quick slip on the black stuff and missed it, was having a bit of a fly about getting some lift off the side of a hill. I just reached into the bag for the

Three flights today, good re call once the quarry had put into cover. On the third flight I could feel that the bird was zoned into her quarry, taking a stealth approach, low level until they rose and

A strange one today. Slipped her in high wind, drizzle, wet and windy with intermittent visibility. She disappeared into the fog on her gull, we were tracking her for a couple of hours I suppose. Then

It can have its uses at times, its surprising how sometimes you can get closer to them if they're used to the farmer driving around checking and feeding stock.

Thats it all wildlife gets familiar with items that they regularly encounter but doesn't harm them, they learn to ignore them. Corvids however can quickly associate a certain vehicle that the falconer or shooter arrives in, the same as they can tell if you are carrying a gun or a stick.

A strange one today. Slipped her in high wind, drizzle, wet and windy with intermittent visibility. She disappeared into the fog on her gull, we were tracking her for a couple of hours I suppose. Then suddenly the magic box said sitting. We honed in on her walking across a valley, and there she was with two crows side by side and both still warm. I would say that she was probably plucking her kill and was being mobbed and one of the antagonists got too close and he paid the penalty, lol.

Kill 31 & 32.
