No one can doubt the love that bird handlers have of the birds of prey in their care. The many hours of devotion it takes to train and provide for these majestic animals, testifies to the fact that a full qualified falconer has a dedicated passion to the art of falconry. It requires a vast knowledge of each of the birds, and this knowledge is not only important, it is simply awe-inspiring. These lofty creatures have inspired folk law, are used as symbols of wisdom and valour, mystery and myth.
Of course, due to the level of hard work, care and attention it takes to provide and train one of these creatures, it is understandable, that even someone who professes to be a lover of these birds of prey, may never have had the chance to own one of their own, or even to try their hand at falconry. This is especially difficult if your live in a built-up area of West London, or somewhere that takes a lot of your time working hard to make ends meet. These other pursuits and necessities of life are also worthwhile, although it doesn’t leave as much time for the things you are really passionate about.
