Re: Where is everybody??? LOL

Thanks Clive (sort of!) and thanks RenŔ.
The crew did a great job. The film was created in the most incredible rush. I thought it was going to look poor, with the birds being given no time to do...

Re: Microsensory GPS stuff

We have the Microsensory kit. We have used the Marshall kit on TV filming projects. We bought the Microsensory kit after using the Marshall kit, partly through being convinced by the fact that the...

Re: Grouse Hawking in Caithness this October.Does

That'll be right enough. Occasional duck can be flushed off too. For fishing, there is, or was at least, a clinker built dinghy to get you off the banks.
Northern lights can be fabulous too.

I'm guessing Thrumster, if not Camster?

Re: Microsensory GPS stuff

I agree about the website, but seeing the product, and understanding the capabilities makes it the only real choice. It does the data link thing with speed, altitude, image on Google map etc, but it...

Re: Microsensory GPS stuff

They are not doing that anymore. They have too many cards on their system and the management is becoming a headache, so now they don't provide sims.

It was a (poor) joke. I could...

Re: Microsensory GPS stuff

We are going to use a sim from UK providor called Anywhere Sim. Their cards jump between all UK carriers. Just hope our birds don't fly to Bulgaria! :lol:

Re: Who uses the GTS_200 telemetry system ?

Our research left us doubtless that if your number one priority is getting your bird back if something goes badly wrong, Microsensory is the only realistic option.
Just taken delivery of ours after...

Re: Microsensory GPS stuff

Aren't you worried that just one providor option means that you are limiting your options if something goes wrong? If your bird is carried 50 or 500 miles away, the service near you isn't relevant. I...

Re: A shadow of its former self

I totally agree Andy.
This place used to be a terrific resource and a good giggle, now it's pretty much dead. I fear that when the sponsorship/advertising money dries up due to the low traffic, the...

Re: Foster parents needed.

Thank you Jurgen, but I wouldn't want to send our youngsters abroad, and I fear that Harris Hawks would be too small, and at risk.
Thank you anyway.

Foster parents needed.

Does anybody have proven eagles (or even large buteos) sitting infertile eggs that could use a chick to raise?
I may have a need for foster parents coming up in the next few weeks.

Re: First hatched eagle of 2017

The baby Verreaux had his closed ring fitted on Friday. At 3 weeks old, it's feet were already too big to take a Golden Eagle size ring, so we part wrapped a ZA to make a half size and fitted that....

Re: First hatched eagle of 2017

The egg shell has been sent away already for DNA sexing. We'll get results on Thursday afternoon. The result of that, and establishing whether the 2nd clutch is fertile, will be the factors that...

Re: First hatched eagle of 2017

Thanks everyone.

This chick will go back to the adults shortly. The parents have recycled, and if the 2nd and or 3rd eggs are fertile, we'll have to foster the chicks - this species is 100%...

In simple terms, don't. They aren't pets, and don't get anything from being petted, except the oil on human skin, that acts as a solvent to the preen oil that offers waterproofing and UV protection...

No. Never pluck feathers. You risk significant trauma to the follicle leading to new feathers being deformed or never growing. You must simply feed a top quality diet, in good volume and WAIT for the...

Re: Yellowbeak Intro

The bird you have is not a common buzzard, it is a honey buzzard (Pernis Apivorus). Something of a specialist. Research their natural diet, and feed as similar to that as you can - which may be...
