What we do

The Yorkshire Hawking Club is a group of like-minded individuals with a keen interest in preserving the traditions, art and culture of falconry.  

The club is affiliated to many national and international falconry related organisations that hold similar values and beliefs.

The membership has a wide range of knowledge, interests and expertise in all aspects of birds of prey ranging from:

  • Practicing falconers actively engaged in the sport of hunting with birds of prey. 

‚ÄčThe club is also fortunate to have trainers and assessors who can deliver internationally recognised falconry related awards and qualifications.

The Yorkshire Hawking Club is particularly interested in attracting those ‘new’ to falconry, especially potential ‘young’ falconers who can subsequently promote and carry on this most ancient and rewarding of traditions and pass on to future generations.
