Hi Matt,
The idea is like the photo posted but the bell shank must be kept from making contact with the bird’s leg by using the traditional fold. Anyway as you will see, it’s illustrated in the book.

Hi Andy,

I'm afraid to say, that's exactly the way in which I hate to see bells attached. It's not just that it's unsightly, it's also potentially dangerous.
If there's room on a jack merlin's leg for aylmeri jess and a bewit, there's room on any hawk's leg.

Best wishes,

Tony.

Neither, have always detested leg bells. Does a boxer go into the ring wearing bracelets? No. Keep the weapons of war unencumbered. Tail mount only!
