Landscape Advice Note: Falconry Displays on Historic Properties

Front cover image for Landscape Advice Note: Falconry Displays on Historic Properties

By Alan Cathersides

Falconry, hunting using trained birds of prey, was introduced to Britain in the early Middle Ages, and was widely practised both for obtaining food and as a sport. It is likely to have been carried out on many historic properties and therefore has a long history of association with historic sites.

This Landscape Advice note examines the nature conservation and management issues related to falconry displays on historic sites.
