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
