Default Gyr/Barbary(Male)

The Wee Man now named the Big Man took his first crow today. My friend Rab who owns him, came to see him fly today. I've had him for couple of months now to fly, Rab nipped down to see how is getting on, and bang he takes a good sized crow. The flight was short and difficult to see due to thick mist, but it was very sweet. He maybe small but he has the heart of a loin, and did well with his prize. I was on the phone to a forum member yesterday and I mentioned to him that I wasn't cofident in him catching, but there you go, glad I was proved wrong. Will post pictures later.

Tom

Cheers Mark, his weight was 1lb 5.5oz today. Really maneuverable flyer, if he stays focused on corvids he will do well. Will put the pictures up later Rab, posting this with the phone.
