All the reading i have done on hawk attacks, there most be a good % of hawks in the Uk now.
But hey lets see what tomorrow brings. Mad Mad Mad Mad

May I suggest Devo Smile Smile talk to the local pigeon men as such & learn the patterns of hawks & how they hunt in your area. Patience is a verture Wink Wink I've found & much of the times our birds are out flying etc it's not really required "As much as we may like it" overall in the big picture. cheers

The petition is being done by a 16 yr old lad, he started in the sport when he was 5 yrs of age. I signed the petition early this morning, and yes it happened to me and my birds. But i call them my family, and they live on my property so i will do whatever to protect them. Along with many others in the sport.

Yes Daz, i have broke the bad news to the parents of these youngsters, and told them they need to work harder at breeding a few stealth youngsters. They need to think outside the box, and breed some youngsters that go under the radar. lol! lol! lol! lol!

I call it the art of zigging & zagging Devo Smile Smile if one wishes to survive etc. When the falcon/gossies are zigging Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes the art is having your babies zagging & vice a versa type of thing Wink Wink. cheers

Two of mine escaped from the look out and had a night out Sunday. Fog cleared yesterday late afternoon so let the YB.s out. Fog rolled back in and 6 had a night out. Rained last night. So let out the yearlings this morning. Dull day light rain.
Did the night outers learn anything? Or just lucky not to be owl bait? Think lucky! Not too interested in racing young birds so not too worried about numbers.
Spring!!!!
