Lantra 'Beginning Falconry' Award
We are sorry to announce that due to recent increases in administration and registration charges, South Cave Falconry will no longer be offering the Lantra course. In place of this we have now launched our own course aimed at anyone interested in taking up falconry as a hobby and particularly anyone considering getting their first bird.
Our course will have a greater emphasis on practical handling skills and we will aim to address many of the questions/difficulties experienced by novice falconers. The course consists of 6 x 2 hour practical sessions covering aviary design, basic handling and husbandry, feeding and weight management, creance training, use of telemetry and free flying.
For students completing the course who are not able to keep a bird at home, we also offer a 'working livery' scheme at the centre. This is dependant on space being available and the suitability of your bird for use with the general public.
The cost for the full course is £200.00.
Please contact us for further details and registration.
EXISTING LANTRA STUDENTS - you will be contacted directly to arrange for course completion.
