Thanks Sean. I can't put in words how proud I was. To be honest he has pretty much surpassed my lure skills!

My daughter is ten next year and hopefully I will breed her first hawk in the form of a Kestrel, I bred 3 this year and didn't think she was quite ready so she has first choice next year,

I don't think you can beat a little Kes. Your daughter will love it. They will always be one of my favourites! Hope it all goes well.

I also want to take this opportunity to say a huge thanks.
Falconers can have a bad reputation especially when it comes to talking about fellow falconers or newbies. So I want this post to show just how much kindness and how many genuine people/falconers that have played a part.

It was quite a journey getting ready for the fair but Elijah has had a huge amount of kindness shown to him along the way which carries on since the fair. I'm going to list those that have had a part in this they know the ways in which they've helped... (In no particular order)

Gary Lawrance
Masters Mews
Allan Gates
David Rampling
Jemima Parry-Jones Mbe
Mark Parker
Rachel Giddings
Adam Fry
Ian Fry
Bob Dalton
Hooded Talons

If I've forgotten anyone then I apologise.
Wouldn't it be great if we could all take a leaf out of their books to be there to help fellow falconers?

Elijah is very passionate about falconry and especially Falcons and he's made a great little falcon here with a bit of help.

Elijah in action.




Reflecting after his last demo

Fantastic to see a young lad so competent and confident. You must be justly proud Reuben.

Thanks Gerry. I am so proud I struggled to hold it together over the weekend! He has now been asked by his school to do a demo so next week he's going to be doing that but he seems to be taking it in his stride. As it's something he really loves.
