Hi guys I know it's not strictly falconry but it is related. I can across the above mentioned sport in book I saw online called "Minor Fieldsports". Does anyone on this forum have any additional info on this kind of fieldsport? If so I'd love to hear about it. Thanks in advance to all who have info they are willing to share.

The term hawking in that instance means the way the Jackdaws take insects out of the air.
