One for the Pot

A Mornings Hawking

The weather took a dramatic change from -11 to 2c, so out with the hawks it was to be. There was still a sharp chill in the air and rain was forecast so we wasn't too sure how long we would be out flying. All the birds were keen and flying well.

Here's some pictures I took.

My good friend Dave hooding up.









The Visla working cover


Play time? Nooo there was mouse down there.






The vislas and terrier flushed some great game for the birds, they all worked hard indeed. That will be it for me for this season flying the BOP, I'm just hoping for some more rain so the dogs can have a few more sessions on the lamp.

Thank you people

I do have some clips of the day, if I can work out how to put them on here then I will tomorrow.

We were after the black stuff and ended up with 3 partridge and 1 crow.

Although I would leave the Hares this time of year, the land owners Harris  bagged 2 bucks.

Two of the dogs were Wire Haired Vislas, and one leggy terrier.

I haven't forgotten Dave. I've had to cancel this weekends flying session, using one hand is a little awkward.
