Shame you have no replys . It's so hard to get ground but having someone walk on your farm that you trust has it's advantages . I was out flying last week and there was a calf on the opposite side of the river struggling to get out on to the bank . So a quick call to the farmer saved him as l kept an eye on him until he arrived and got him out. On other occasions l have let the farmer know about flooding water troughs and sheep stuck in a slurry pit, not to mention how many times I have shut gates where other walkers have left them open . Good luck in your search.

Didn't get a reply .But like you l have some ground but always looking for new ground with rabbits on it . I have been thinking of a goss for the last 2 seasons. I have a lot of ducks on some of my permission and a few pheasants. l do well with the harris on the pheasants but she struggles with the ducks .I have a mate who flys a goss and I am not sure if I can cope with a stroppy hawk but if I can't find more rabbit ground I may have to give it a go .

My last one wasn’t just stroppy he was a grabber☹️
the one I fly now is pr male non aggressive and silent in the field.. never flown him at ducks but I think he’ll have a go when winter sets in and his weight gets up Abit

Five nature-recovery projects spanning nearly 100,000ha across the West Midlands, Cambridgeshire, the Peak District, Norfolk and Somerset have been announced by the government and Natural England today (Thursday, May 26).

This is the equivalent in size to all 219 current National Reserves.

The aim of the projects is to deliver nature recovery at a landscape scale, helping to tackle biodiversity loss, climate change and improve public health and well-being.

All five projects will make a significant contribution towards the national delivery of the international commitment to protect at least 30% of land and...
