Default Lost Saker Falcon

Lost Saker Falcon Fareham/Stubbington area, south Hampshire. 4.45pm

Last signal was moving towards Portsdown Hill, currently none being received.

She is leg tagged with 2 transmitters on 173.200-173.210 and 173.280-173.290 (channel A and C on the TRX-3S system).

I'm hoping the lack of signal currently is due to her being on the ground having caught something.

Anyone in South Hampshire that can have a scan around would be greatly appreciated.

07761260807 is my number.

KR

I hope you get a safe return and local telemetry users give you a helping hand. I'm sure she'll turn up soon as you're probably right to her killing something. Keep us updated.

ATB,

Bradley

An early start and a bit of luck she'll be back on the glove in the morning......eventually got the signal and have tracked her.

All good, back on the block...........tired but seemingly OK, currently preening!!!

Don't like it when the signal totally disappears like that, maybe time to try the back pack again?

That's great news, I had every faith it would be quite a quick return. Did you find her on a kill or had she just had another and gone on an adventure?

Happy Hawking,

Bradley

Sorry to here that, it took me three days to eventually track and retrieve my Lanner, problem was she got used to going after easier prey, took a lot of re training, she was an old bird as well 17 years old when she passed away, and only then because the idiot next door decided to light a fire and burn rubber, while I was out at work, hope she returns to you, will keep my eyes and ears open.
