Hi Harold, Ferreting for rabbits has always been the mainstay of my Falconry, unfortunately in present times the Rabbit is all but gone from my area of England, as it is over much of the Country. I don't think I will see populations return to what they once were in my Lifetime! If they ever do. A real sad situation for Country sportsman of all disciplines whether it be shooting, Ferreting or running Dogs.

We are still getting out, although opportunities are few and far between, Spike has been flying Pheasants well when we find them and they are mostly adult Cock Birds which in the open terrain we fly them are not easily brought to Bag. This one was caught this weekend and he absolutely destroyed it. Millie was on a scent when the Cock Bird busted from a Reed bed to my right, I was walking on top of a dirt bank which surrounds a pond, Spike missed the pheasant on the rise and crossed over the top of him, he then turned with the wind as the Cock Bird rocketed across the pond, as the Pheasant rose over the far Bank Spike got about 10 feet above him stooped down and bound with both feet on his neck, Game over. Big old crop off home Credit goes to Millie really as without her we wouldn't be finding anything, and she really has to work on this land to locate them. A few pics.

Back Home.

Thanks Chris, he has been unlucky lately, you know when the slips just don't work in the Goshawks favour even though the effort is total. Still when you put one in the bag it lifts the whole teams spirit
