Hopefully we can meet again sometime this season for another hunt.

Thanks Terry, yes that would be good.

Bind in the film was simple, I imagine because he approached in the blind spot. Stats show he was doing 80 mph at point of impact, partridge maybe 40 mph.

Hello

Far to windy to fly today.

He weighed 1lb and 76grams so bang on flying weight. Fed him chicks on first and went looking for new possible flying places on marshes near home.

Tide was out. Went to a brackish dyke system I used to hunt with the Goshawk.

It's hard to spot for ducks cos its twists alot. But did spot then flush a group of four Mallards.

The twisting nature of the dyke means it better because the ducks are more likely to cross open land rather than fly the water.

The problem is that crossings are very far apart. So it might mean wading through if he catches one. Its probably 5ft deep. Nice on a winters evening....!

Other issues are its plagued with mooronic gallaniulles that feed out on the fields and a Barn Owl hot spot too.

But the ducks I flushed tonight were catchable.

I'll probably have a nice evening dip in there soon. Can't wait...lol

It's fed by the estuary nearby.

Regards

Terry

Estuary that feeds the dyke system. Avocets breed here in the summer months
