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! :)
