I've been working with a falconer, does sound like an interesting sport. I'd be looking for local clubs and associations, might get to see a few birds in action. This guy has a spare specifically for nailing magpies, and Gos's for everything else. Plus you can get into pointers and what not too, Atb Joe

You could consider joining the Scottish Hawking Club. There are a few members over there and some might help you out.


As for books, I would read Falconry and Hawking by Philip Glaser and also Emma Ford's Falconry Art and Practise.

You can sometimes get these books at the local Library.

But nothing beats getting help from a "decent, experienced" falconer mate.
