Absolutely Bill, and full of memories of time spent there with yourself and with Hub.

Cheers Tom. Nice to be living the dream again, or at least my version of it.

Hi Shaun,

that's right.
It's a picture taken after taking the first of his three grouse. His falcon flew very well, making her height in better air before being called over.
A lovely stoop and a killing strike --- and a very happy falconer!

Best wishes,

Tony.

This is great Tony, everything apart from you losing your crown of course! It looks like you all had a great time and that the Falcon's performed well. Was it Red or Black Grouse that you were flying at? It certainly looks like a great area that you were flying in. I'm glad to see that Dancer's back up and well again for another season, looking forward to reading more.

Best Wishes,

Bradley

Hi Bradley,
yes, it was great fun, and in a beautiful place (flying at red grouse).
We're back in Suffolk now, which is magical in its own way, flying mostly at redlegs rather than red grouse.
A different kind of challenge.
Best wishes,
Tony.
