Wharfedale falconry club needs land to fly its birds
8:00am Monday 7th October 2013 in Local news
A long-established falconry club is looking for land to fly its birds on in the Wharfedale area.
Established in 1967, the Northern England Falconry Club regularly meets at Brighouse, but hopes landowners and farmers in the Ilkley area would be willing to let them meet on their land.
There are currently about 20 members, who fly birds including Harris hawks, red-tailed hawks, goshawks and falcons, pursuing wild quarry such as rabbits.
Any farmer or landowner who would be willing to host field meetings on their land are asked to contact Tim Smith on 07709 192728, or visit the clubs website, northernenglandfalconryclub.co.
