|Acek, in front as Qutuldu catches up after the long climb. The farmers are a long way below moving slowly up the valley trying to shift any fox that may be there.
From up here the berkutchi have a commanding view but a fox really has to make a break for it before it is worth committing a berkut.
Ishpay, our other berkutchi is on the other side of the valley but at a lower level. He is positioned to take the short flights between rock hold ups, if the fox gives his berkut the slip and makes a bolt for the open hill then we have a good view of any flight our berkuts might take on.
