    Help with falconry introduction, in Derbyshire

    Hi
    This is a long shot however I've always fancied falconry but have no idea where to start. Is there anyone nearish to North Derbyshire who could give me a quick introduction. Land is no issue you can use any of my permissions.

    Regards Oli

    Check out www.falconryforum.co.uk
    If you have a suitable bit of ground for hawking of one type or another I'm sure someone will take you under their wing

    Is it true falconry or flying hawks you're interested in?
    Might be able to put you in touch with someone.
    Below is a link to my website.

    Give garlands a call and ask to speak to Ian Garland he breeds hawks and might be able to offer some advice.

    Thanks for replies, I'm not really after a " experience day out" I could just do with an idea of where to start with the hobby. Even simple things like can you keep birds in a brick shed or will it need heating.Whether the birds make lots of noise. I'm a keen bird watcher and have never known birds of prey to be particularly vocal, however if they are noisy it's a non starter as the neighbours will moan. I will try some of your suggestions to get some answers.

    Regards Oli

    Speak to Mike, at Calton Moor Range, Swinscoe, you can PM him on this site he's a trade member. I'd be astonished if he didn't know of someone nearby. You should be able to google Calton Moor Range for his phone number.

    He certainly helped my daughter a few years ago when she was flying her Harris...until the kids came along and time availability took it's toll. ATB

    Try David stretton as well as doing DMQ 1&2. His son does a lot with hawks I think he may be able to help
