We are not a bird of prey centre, we work out of different venues throughout Argyll including:
Inverawe Fisheries and Country Park
Inverawe Country Park is located about 15 miles east of Oban on the A85. This is where we carry out some of our experiences, within this stunningly, beautiful forested area of Argyll.
Hawk Walk Experiences
Witness true Harris Hawk behaviour as they lead us through the woods on the beautiful Nature Trail, within the spectacular woodland of Inverawe. Thrill at the speed the Harris' Hawks can fly through the woods, like a ghost, you only know they're there by hearing their bells as they whizz past with grace and agility. Paul will guide you in the safe handling of the hawks and point out any other interesting wildlife or behaviour.
Last from about one - two or three hours dependent on experience chosen and covers the following:
- safety induction;
- basic hawk handling;
- introduction to the different birds you will handle;
- falconry methods and equipment;
- falconers knot;
- a hawk walk;
The Falconry Experience 3 is my most popular experience and is a perfect stepping stone leading to a course as you handle and fly different types of raptors used in falconry. I will actively discourage you from taking up falconry as its a dedicated life style choice, which is all consuming, 24-7, 365 days a year, requiring not only your full commitment, but your family and friends!
