THE FIVE DAY FALCONRY COURSE
The Five Day Course covers:
Handling of Hawks, Falcons, Eagles and Owls
Care and Management
Health and Disease
The week is hard work and requires concentration, but by the end of the course those partaking should be experienced enough to face training a totally untrained bird without too many problems. There is a good deal of handling of birds and flying them all outside and often in inclement weather.
Training is given by qualified Glasgow Birds of Prey Centre Staff. The birds used are those trained and flown at the Centre, which gives you the opportunity of flying several species. The course is held at the Centre with wonderful facilities, instructors and surroundings.
The cost of the Course is £450.00 per person. B&B accommodation is available locally and enquiries can be made with the office. The Centre also has a coffee shop where lunch and snacks can be purchased.
A deposit of £100.00 is required to secure the booking and an invoice will be sent for the balance approximately 1 month before the start date of the Course.
