Looking forward to reading it.

I'm feeling very confident Ian as I've spent the past decade or so trying to perfect my method and can't wait to try it out on a new hawk of a completely unknown (to me) line of peregrines. Of course I may very well fall flat on my face but I've never been one to hide my shortcomings so I might as well hang myself out there!

I managed to source a falcon Sam after a lot of phone calls. I could have had a tiercel virtually for the asking (after having good offers from friends - thanks to both Kevs ) but really didn't fancy picking another one up as I'd had my heart set on a falcon.

Thanks Eddie - picking 'Jenni' up on Tuesday morning after working the night-shift!

Good luck with yours.

Thanks Tony - I certainly think it will be a first for the IFF of a falconer inviting pressure on himself by predicting the outcome of an unknown quantity..........I'm the Derren Brown of gamehawking aren't I?

Thanks Mick - I always use method number 4 as I believe it is the simplest and best however I like to have number 3 up my sleeve as 'plan B' and Marnie benefitted from this approach as I cocked-up 'plan A' !
