THE RESIDENCES AT PITTORMIE ACTIVITIES BROCHURE
Ideal for those who have a fascination about bird of prey (raptors), and would like to enjoy the thrill and experience of handling and flying birds of prey. You will start by flying one of the delightful Owls, but will also experience Hawks, Eagles, Osprey and other species.
You will fly the birds (under supervision of course) and have your first taste of the ancient art that is falconry - the partnership between man and a top aerial predator. Today, Falconry is practiced widely across Scotland, providing a rich knowledge of birds of prey and their natural hunting techniques.
Falconry is an art. It requires long hours, constant devotion, finesse, subtlety and skill. The falconer must train a bird of prey to fly free, hunt for its master and then accept a return to captivity.
Hold one of these amazing birds of prey on your arm, release it into the air and feel the sensation as it returns
