Though I agree with you,frustrating trying to explain with words,

Third slip was a this years cock bird,good slip but he lost ground flying through branches.

Last slip was a long flight on a mature cock bird,no joy again.

Very much like Attila in his first season,flying well but not much success,a little frustrating.


Try putting a smidgen of weight on him now his conditions back.

Taking out a carcass tomorrow,if he hasn't killed by last slip I'll kick around where I find him and throw it out,

I know what you mean there Stu. Horace is going brilliant appart from losing birds incover. The other day could of easily pulled a cock bird but just kept with it all the way. Then bang had it then lost it again..

Your doing far better than me. Keep it up pal.
