Hawkridge bird of prey Centre is proud to be able to offer fully certificated courses from Raptor Awards
The course is available throughout the year and is aimed at those who have little or no experience in the art of falconry, but lots of enthusiasm and a passion for birds of prey.
Spread over five days we aim to guide you through the minefield of information and legislation you need to be aware of before getting your bird.
The course is completely hands-on and covers bird suitability, legislation, husbandry, training, weight management, diet, health, telemetry, essential equipment, first aid, suppliers and much more.
At the end of your course we would expect you to be confident around but respectful of all birds of prey.
We would also expect you to not only know which bird you want!
But what bird is best suited to you and your circumstances.
