Hello I'm looking for some advice I've always been interested in falconry . I've been asked about taking a bird or prey on (I'm in pest control) and my boss has asked if I'd be interested . Was hoping for some advice. Where do I start ? Is there any clubs ect . I've read about mentors but I'd imagine they are like hens teeth?.
Any help much appreciated.

Hi Bourne

 

The books I started out reading were Philip Glaziers book - Falconry and Hawking

and also Emma Fords book Falconry Art and Practice.

There are more modern books, some are good some are cr*p.

These books are relatively cheap or get them from the Library.

 

But a good mentor nearby is the way to go.

 

All the best
