Default Dream come true

Don't know how to start this but here go's, My phone rang today and my mate Mark (Tessy) blurts out "I've just bought you a Pere/Saker, after I spluttered and stammered we agreed to pick up the bird this evening from Armthorpe falconry, I had to go through the rest of the day at work nearly wetting myself with excitement as I never thought I would get the oppertunity to fly a Pere/saker
And Mark knew this, after what seemed like a life long journey we arrived at Armthorpe and as was I immediately blown away by about 10 young imprints, inc
Gyrs, sat on a lawn and then things got even better as I was given a tour of the breeding pens full of Gyrs, Black, white and even a super white,
The setup was spotless and the birds where immaculate, a credit to the guys that run Armthorpe.
After choosing a dark phase bird it was caught up, jessed sprayed down and hooded and the best bit, Sat on MY fist,we boxed him up and headed back to Marks, got him out of the box just for a quick check and decided to weigh him,
Only 1.7 hooded, we where both a bit shocked as we expected about 1.11,(the same as Marks bird whome is the brother). After a feel of him
wedecided to unhood him and try him on a chick and yes you guessed it after a rouse he had a small feed off the fist.
Mark, I really don't know how to thank you enough,

Meet Neo
