The Falconry School is a small and intimate establishment dedicated to showing best practises in how to care for, handle and fly birds of prey, for the purposes of falconry. It has an enviable reputation as a training establishment, and students come from all over the world to learn about the training and management of birds of prey. Much of our tuition is on a one-to-one basis, enabling students to get the maximum value from their course or coaching.
The Falconry School is not a centre which is open to casual visitors. Often such falconry/bird of prey centres provide courses or a Falconry Experience day as an add-on to their usual activities, but these are our PRIMARY activities.
Falconry may be defined as the use of trained raptors for hunting, but it is quite possible to keep and fly birds of prey without hunting with them. The important word is "fly", and everything that falconry is about is the flight, and all our careful management, handling and training leads to this ultimate purpose.
Therefore, at The Falconry School, participants, students and spectators will NOT see dozens of these superb creatures locked in cages, as may be found in a zoo. Instead, you will see a relatively small number of falcons, hawks and owls, kept in readiness for free flight every day, in the peak of condition.
