Thanks for this. It’s not often that all three birds are able to be flown on one walk, so you were lucky there! However, Lady M, the big, bold female hawk is going to be doing more work in the future and with any luck...More

Thank you. Getting this close to the birds is an unusual experience, and people who have only seen hawks or owls at a distance really get a lot out of having them on their fist. Do come again. Regards,

Thanks very much for this. All three birds have their distinctive characters and although they aren’t always all available to fly, it’s interesting for people to meet them. Please come again. Regards,

I stumbled on the website of North Devon Hawk Walks by accident and was immediately fascinated. I had seen birds of prey in falconry shows before, but never had I got any closer. I contacted Nigel to book a walk right away. Already the correspondence...More

Thanks very much indeed for this. You were fortunate to see Cassius in predator mode. I always tell people that we are not there to hunt, because of course not everyone wants to do that, but that Cassius makes the ultimate decision. Regards,

Thanks for this, and I’m glad you enjoyed your time with the birds. Falconry, hunting with hawks, history, aerodynamics, biology, the relationship between the hawk and me, nature generally. So much to discuss! I have five locations to fly at, all very different. Do come...More

Thank you very much for this and I’m glad you all enjoyed your hawk walk. Lady Macbeth, a totally different character to Cassius, will be conducting walks this winter so you may want to come back and see how she does things.

Well, you certainly hid your nervousness very well! It is, of course, quite sensible to be wary of a flying thing with claws and a beak landing on your fist. That's where I come in. Although I've only been doing this for fifteen or so...More
