Falconry & Raptor Rehabilitation Club

I went down to Falconry & Raptor Club with Michelle who's in charge of the club this morning and got a chance to meet the birds.

She quickly showed me how they do the Falconers knot but I think it'll take quite a bit of practice to get the hang of it!

I got to hold Duckie the Peregrine Falcon - he got his name 'cos he's always chatting and quacking away!

They also have two Kestrels, a partially blind Gyr/Gyr-Saker hybrid called Bear and two new additions they're working with are a Harris Hawk and a Goshawk.

They aren't actively looking for new people to the club this year but Michelle said I should be able to shadow people for a few weeks to learn the basics, see if I like it and then I can think about joining! :)
