Gary,
I'm sorry to say that Lance left the business before xmas. Paul is still hanging on like the rest of us. It is a tough time the works are on 4 day week currently but still on full pay.

Day 175 Thursday

Raining today day but still snow covers most of the ground and again a very heavy fog has fallen. We went to the local meadow despite the limited visiblilty and i had a very touchy Redtail on the glove we had a few attempts at footing and even a go with the beak but i seen it all before and avoid his efforts i think its due to the enforced layoff and the fog.
Did get him going up and down the meadow with a series of short casts and recalls, he would not fly any distance i believe because of the visibility.
Plan the same again tomorrow getting ready for the weekend.

Day 176 Friday

Weight slowly coming off 1lb 15oz today the lack of activity is not helping, a very heavy fog has again fallen and he is finding it very difficult, mis-judged the glove twice today so cut the session short.
much better mannered no repeat of yesterdays attempts.

Snow has begun to fall again, hopefully we will be out at the weekend.
