The art of falconry 1

By suejoh  
We are part of a falconry club that hunts rabbits on the New Forest under a pest control license. We have been going since 2004 - the date of this picture.
I have decided to load pictures on my website, for the club really, to see themselves almost 10 years ago, and I thought I would load some here.

It is very useful because as soon as you put up a pic here you critique the photo more and you realise there has to be context for people.

So got rid of my first choice and picked this one. The ferret is put down the into the warren and drives a rabbit up where the bird will chase it and hopefully catch it. This is only done during the winter.
