Yep, wind direction indicator. 😁
For the record I don't smoke whilst working her per se. That vid near the little wood, she was walking at loose heal whilst we were moving down to a different area so i took the opportunity for a quick puff, she bumped the bird.

I am reliably informed that this is what is called a "positive find" all I know is she hunted fairly close and didn't begger off or chase a bird 😁

Well it seems that dogging in the other field (not the one in vid) is a nightmare. Birds sitting tight, presumably loads of scent being driven by the wind is pulling her in on multiple flushes and a couple of "over the threshold" moments. Its hard work keeping hold of her.
I can see now how dogging in can be damaging for a beating dog 😞 we didn't have uncut fields last year so its a different script this season. 😲

The last few days for an easy life, I have allowed her to have her nose a bit more which has meant that in grass she has hunted further than I would like for beating but for dogging in it works. I am talking about her picking up scent and pushing out maybe thirty yards or so. Once the bird or birds are up she comes straight back. I am hoping that in the confine's of a wood she will revert back to beating distance 😞

Anyone got any thoughts on this ??

She will "revert" to any distance you let her revert to . :whistle:
