Default Lola

First outing for Lola a 2008 Goshawk she tipped the scales at 2lb-7oz at 1-00pm to day, i was accompanied by friend & photographer Brad Carter (Black Staff Photography). We had a few unsuccessful flights on pheasant after a rocky start, she didn't take to Brad waving his camera about but as the afternoon drew on she settled down quite nicely. we decided to check the pond out & here are the results, for the love of me i don't know how he could react that fast it was all over in a blink of an eye. The real hard bit was wading through the reeds to retrieve them needless to say i got rather wet.

I picked up and weighed her at 2-25pm she tipped the scales at 2lb-6 5/8oz as time was getting on i decided to bolt some rabbits for her to build her confidence, as her last two outings were unsuccessful. we went to one of our little hot spots, the first bury was bare but the second produced the desired bunny with a fast and furious flight including a somersault but she got it under control quite quickly. After 5 minutes of pluming she picked up ok with a piece of rabbit back (2 5/8oz of meat minus the back bone). We were all done and dusted by 4-00pm, And back home 4-30pm i wish ferreting was this easy all the time. The Rabbit was a nice doe that tipped the scales at 3lb- 5 1/4oz.
