Falconry Course for Beginners or the Experienced
This is a five day course taken to Lantra qualification standard if you want to go further with your paperwork, to gain the qualification through me. These courses are broken down into three units and will give you the confidence, basic knowledge of bird management and care and a more in depth look into falconry. Please bare in mind, no one can teach you falconry in five days, this is a life time gain through experience and even we are still learning.

The price of this course is £500 per person, also includes an afternoon out hunting quarry at the end of the week. There is no pressure on you, so if you are stuck on something we will go back over and sort the problem out that you are having. Our staff are well practised and knowledgeable on falconry, holding Lantra qualifications ourselves.
We will be working with owls, hawks falcons/buzzards and kites. All the birds we use are indigenous except for our Harris Hawks, so why not learn with traditional Birds of Prey?
