Thanks to a late moult and a late autumn, we're not hunting yet, but I have started the process of reclaiming Stekoa, and that includes some weathering time out of the mews.

These last few days, that means utilising my anniversary present from Jess, a new block made by Daniel Parker from northeast Nebraska. Daniel is a first-year apprentice, but already making fine block perches, several of which have been purchased by falconers in the U.K. This one in black walnut is, I believe, his sixth block, and I'm very pleased to have it. (Thank you, Jessa!) If anyone reading this is in the market, I'll be glad to put you in touch.
