Expanding on the half day course, the morning is spent learning about the birds and equipment with some free-flying. After lunch the birds are taken out into the countryside for some free flying or hunting. £259 per person

Alternatively, during your stay at The Murray Arms, you can sample the delights of falconry with family or friends by taking in a Hawk Walk, lasting approximately 1 hour, this is the perfect introduction to birds of prey and the art of falconry. Some time is spent getting used to the birds and equipment before taking a short walk with a bird on the arm. It may be possible to free-fly the birds. Minimum Party of 6—£30 per person.
