Falconry or hawking is a sport which involves the use of trained birds of prey to hunt or pursue game for humans.

It takes a while to become trained to handle birds of prey properly, however you can get the chance to experience what is involved from a falconry experience. There are plenty of birds of prey centres such as the falconry centre in the Cotswolds or the falconry centre in Yorkshire. They will introduce you to the art of falconry. They will let you handle the birds under supervision, and fly them to catch some prey.
