Default Jimmy G,

Parent reared tercel peregrine, first season, waiting on mainly over hedgerows
and drainage ditches, with the occasional foray over stubble and winter barley,
quite a modest bag of 11 head, but non stop action, he was very prone to check but never got lucky out of sight, but always came back to re climb and hold station over us. He sometimes stayed on the wing for half an hour, but that did
not happen over night, I used a combination of working him along hedges and drainage dykes, always making sure there was quarry to be had in the hedges,
but the ditches were last knocking speculative flying. There were a few flights using a friends pointer on partridge and he took to this with a knock down one day, he moderated his pitch to the quarry flown, his best flight from approx 600
Foot was a teal, now that did make me smile.

A few more shots.

That's a good first season Steve, there's no reason why he won't go on to improve in so many ways next season and beyond. Thanks for sharing.

He took the magpie from a pitch of approx 150 foot, it was engaged after a stoop from around 300 foot but the pie made it across a 20 yard gap to another
Hedge, he remained over the hedge until we worked it along the 200 yard hedge, one each side, to break out and fly along the drainage ditch to a nearby blackberry bush, he just rolled over and bound to its wing, a few feet away from the bush.

Well done Steve - hard to catch those pies with a single bird. Tricky customers aren't they.
