Re: What ring is this please

Ste,

Have you managed to get the bird sorted? That leg definitely has issues. If it isn't broken then it is certainly deformed in some way, for some reason. The Hawk does not look in the best...

Re: Sparrowhawk Investigation

Good write up Brad and a fine little musket to see! I had an encounter with one today too! Only he almost flew in to my windscreen but pulled up at the last minute. Hope you're well!

Re: Falconry in Poland

Haha Adam! I have indeed visited and you are correct it is beautiful! It is good to have humor and at least with so few falconers there should be plenty of prey for you all!

All the best
