Hi Steve

No doubting the quality of the hawks produced, just the labels.

just a wee joke

That's about the size of it, as long as you have the time to fly it most days (weather permitting) and get it fit and well conditioned, it won't disappoint. After all they aren't really hybrids, they are just northern goshawks, I wish you all the best with him. Chris

In my opinion, probably very little noticeable difference, I think there have been Goshawks in this country with a higher % of Albidus blood in them than that for years and people didn't know what they had - just classed as pale Finnish etc.

Hence hawks like this...

It was a good time for us both, but didn't last long, that picture was taken a couple of days before he disabled himself chasing another cock pheasant. Best I have flown, and probably ever will as I don't have the time or land I did when I flew him. I flew a daughter of his last season and look forward to picking her up again this season.

He's an imprint, luckily, so at least I and my friends get to fly his progeny.

No worries Mike, I know, worked for me for awhile anyway until my luck ran out flying him. No regrets though, would have been criminal not to experience what I did flying him.

Atb,
Steve.
