Today Little-N has had the amazing experience of flying a harris hawk. At first he was a bit scared and alarmed by the weight of the bird. The trainers were very encouraging and by the end of his session he was confident holding the bird. His love for birds of prey has lead him to learn the English and Latin names of many species. I'm thinking of registering him on a junior falconry course next month but I'm not sure if it's too early for him to start serious bird training!
