At present, we fly two birds, both Harris Hawks, (Parabuteo Unicinctus).
On the walk, you'll learn why this species is so widely used in falconry. Lady Macbeth is fifteen years old, with a wingspan of just over a meter, and weighs about a kilo. Cassius, being male, is smaller with a wingspan just under a meter and weighs about 800 grammes.
A new arrival is a barn owl, as yet unnamed, who should be flying for us later this year ( 2020).
Falconry on Exmoor
A Hawk Walk is an introduction to falconry. You fly the bird, you are the falconer. You will learn how to get the hawk to fly to you, how to send her away, how to feed her on your fist. You will learn about their way of life, how they are adapted to their environment and see at first hand some of the attributes of these raptors that have fascinated us since the dawn of time.
We do not to take online payments. That's one of the reasons our prices are so low. To arrange a date, please phone or email. You will be asked to make a bank transfer. As soon as the transfer is done, you'll be booked in.
Please ignore all shopping trolleys etc on this new site, we're working on it.
Vouchers, valid for twelve months, are available.
We're happy to bring the hawks along to private parties, schools, U3A , W.I. meetings etc.

Yes. The birds can't fly in heavy rain or strong winds. If I decide the weather is no good, we'll postpone to another mutually agreeable date.
