We have traded successfully since 1998 but have been professional falconers for longer, consequently we have an excellent reputation for the quality of our falconry practice. The welfare of our birds is paramount and we are a vetted member of the International Register of Bird of Prey Professionals. Not all falconers are equal, and most falconers who offer historical displays do so as a sideline to other things and are merely modern falconers wearing a costume, but with us you can rest assured that we are true historic specialists, it is the ONLY thing we do and we are the absolute best at it!
