This course offers time to gain a huge insight into the world of birds of prey, their species, care, management and handling. This is a great course for people new to falconry, people that wish to keep birds of prey or experienced falconers looking to extend their skills and get a recognised award. We have a wide collection of birds and want to share our interest and skills with those who have become fascinated too. This is a 5 day course, covering bird of prey management, safety for bird and falconer, how to use a creance line, falconry equipment, transporting birds, the falconer’s knot, building trust between bird and falconer, weight and food management, training your bird to return to the glove and using a transmitter. A Raptor Awards certificate will be received once the course is completed.
