Last day of
Once again we've had a good year, with
many speakers from the full spectrum of Raptor Life. Hawk and Owl trust,
Police Wildlife Liaison Officer, Roger Upton, Nick Fox and Terry Large
to name but a few.
I would like to welcome young Chris
Selman, a young falconer, as our new secretary and treasurer, and to thank
Tony Ellis for his past support.
Throughout the year we've had our highs
and lows with old members taking a break from the bar and new members
turning up to meet other falconers and learn how to hold a pint of beer.
It's been nice to see young blood joining our region and turn up on a
regular basis. On club nights Roy and Kevin Wellings of Falcon Fayre have
provided us with top quality Falconry Furniture and Nick and Lynn Haverman-Mart
of Honeybrook Farm have supplied our members and guests with top quality
frozen hawk food. I would like to thank both these companies for their
Buzz's last kill
We have had several small individual
field meets set up by our regional members that have provided some good
sport. I organised a weekend in Devon with five other falconers. Two guests
joined us (They had bid the highest for a days hawking in a Countryside
Alliance auction). The guests were spoilt with dramatic flights from Goshawks
and a Longwing, taking 15 pheasants, 3 partridge, 2 mallard and 1 crow.
Our regional meetings are informal and
laidback. The Bull Inn, Hinton is our gathering place for a good hawk
chat and on a good month you can catch Dave and Jean Dimond taking a well
earned break at the bar.
