Back out with terry again at the land fill site with some more action from Ugly Betty, she had a couple of unsuccessful flights all action though, and third time lucky she mounted a low level attack on a small group of crows several hundred yards away, before the crows new it she was among them selecting her target with some twists and turns followed by a few throw ups with a final stoop and catch, and then mayhem with all the locals mobbing her. then followed a 400yd run with shouting waving arms to drive them off, Terry was first on the scene to administer the final stroke, and i arrived a little later to enjoy the scene, and my falconry fix for the day. We both had to wear hard hats today because the big cheese was on site.
