Default Gyr/Barbary Falcon (Female)

Picked her up from David Rampling last month, wasn't a barb out of place. David had been flying her for demo, but thought she was just wasted as a lure bird. I have flown a tiercel and was impressed with this hybrid, so when the chance came to buy her from David, I finally arranged a date to pick her up. On her first couple of days lose I was impressed with the power in this birds flight, a friend also commented on this. Well it came good today when she took her first gull, she steamed into a huge flock and thumped and bound to it in flight. So far she has meet and passed all expectations I had for her at this stage.

David flew her last season as a lure bird. David was her second owner and isn't sure of her past, she is a 08 bird.

Hope so Gordon. Kerry, that's what pushed me to get a female the male I have is outstanding. I can't afford a untouched eyeass, so was lucky to get this one at a good price.
