The term falconry means to use a bird of prey to hunt for food for the
pot which is exactly what would have taken place in the 13th or 14th
century. The course will start with a personal introduction to handling
and flying the birds. Followed by an afternoon in the field where you
will be allocated a hawk to work with for the afternoon. There are
various hunting grounds. Only quarry caught will be rabbit.
Hunting Days – lunch will be included.

We usually like to limit courses up to 4 people. If you would like to
work one to one or have a particular preference the birds you would like
