You’ll have noticed we haven’t published our diary this year and sadly we’re not going to. Too many other unscrupulous falconers think it’s ok to look through our work list and contact our customers behind our back. Well it’s not ok, it’s enormously disrespectful. Those people who genuinely want to know where we are performing this year so they can attend are welcome to email us directly to request an event list. We have some really interesting events commencing Easter week and running right through to December. There’s a new “Myths & Legends” theme to many of the events, lots of jousts, mounted falconry and even a couple of visits to a present day royal castle!

Last year we joined the International Register of Bird of Prey Professionals (IRBPP) which is a new organisation designed to raise standards within the commercial and professional falconry industry. The red and white logo can be seen displayed on our home page. Commercial falconers have long been woefully under-represented so it is hoped that we finally have a body who can look after our interests and encourage fellow operators to work to a common high standard. Emma has been invited to join the advisory panel after raising some concerns about eligibility and the membership process. It is hoped that a variety of opinions from a cross section of established commercial falconers can help shape the direction and value of this organisation. Everyone vetted and approved joins as an associate member for 2 years, the difficulty is how to progress people to full membership status if indeed they have earned that privilege. It will be interesting to see how this story develops!

We are extremely proud to announce that we are one of the first commercial falconers in England to be awarded the new Animal Activities Licence. We made our application in October, had our inspection on 20th December and were awarded a 3 year license. Our operation was described as “outstanding” and we are elated that our hard work and investment to prepare for this new legislation has been thoroughly worthwhile. All our clients can rest assured that by employing us they are employing legally licensed animal practitioners and commercial falconers of the highest calibre. It will soon be emblazoned on our home page…..
