From the falconer
Our resident expert Kevin told us:“I started falconry as a hobby, which quickly became a passion! My first venture into falconry was hunting with a Harris Hawk, which then progressed to a Goshawk. Through a friend I was given a job on a landfill site flying my first falcon, a hybrid Peregrine/Prairie, to deter crows, rooks and gulls, therefore, combining my hobby with a paying job! “
Kivin and his partner, Kim, currently fly a number of beautiful birds including a Peregrine falcon, Harris Hawks and a Great Horned Owl.
“On the pest control side we have worked for Hospitals, Housing Associations, a major Public Transport Company, Local Councils, Food Producers, Schools and Universities, mainly targeting pigeons, gulls, Canada geese, rabbits, plus any other bird related problems. We are extremely passionate about what we do and take a great pride in our birds and the job that they do.”
In conjunction with our birds, we also use other methods to deter pest species, and we are always looking for new ways to achieve the desired result for our clients.
