hi david
good luck with the female
is she for hunting?if so whats your intended quarry with her
would think a female will be some machine if the males are anything to go by
the weeman has had flights at jackdaw off the fist,straight line race to cover and pulled them out the sky,his first kill was a common gull which he had killed before i got there so they have balls

Atb,rab

Hi Rab, she is for demo work, she has been used for tip clearance, so have had to teach her to chase a lure. She is tame, friendly, has good manners, and automatically powers up into the wind to come back hard. She will be my best demo falcon within a year, I love her to bits!

A wee update on the Big Man, just finished feeding him up on crow number two at the landfill. He took a good crow on his first slip, this was caught fair and square no mugging in the mist, beautiful sunny day here. I unfortunately didn't see the final bind, but seen him overhaul his crow before they went over a small hill. He threw up two or three times and then no sign apart from the other crows mobbing above. Will post pictures later.
