Falconry, I read, hadn't changed in thousands of years. I enjoyed reading about the different aspects of falconry such as rook hawking, game hawking, flying merlins and sparrowhawks and each one I mentally ticked off as something that I would master with time.

So that was my plan, get all the equipment, a good food supply, not forgetting the bird and the rest will fall into place.......
