Five Day Course - Beginning Falconry including Lantra Award

This course covers all the knowledge required for the beginning falconry award from  Lantra, the land based awards agency and covers all aspects of bird of prey management and husbandry up to flying a bird free.  It is a formal award for those new to falconry as well as more experienced falconers who want to demonstrate that they meet the minimum standard.  The award is given on satisfactory completion of work and demonstration of competence in all areas.  We are fortunate enough to have our own assessor so completion of this work and achievement of competence can be assessed quickly and efficiently as part of your course.
