South Wilts Falconry was established by Toby Puddle who has been a practicing falconer for over 18 years. Having worked in a variety of falconry positions here in the UK, Toby holds an exemplary CV and has had the privilege in working with and alongside some of the country's most respected faces within the sport.
Falconry is the art of flying trained hawks at wild quarry in their natural environment. It is an old and very spectacular sport requiring commitment, patience and absolute dedication. We endeavour to educate the public in the sport of falconry, the hawks and falcons, conservation, hawk welfare and most importantly how success is gained in the field.
Our hawks, owls and falcons have all been bred in captivity, they are highly trained using old and 21st century methods to be able to deliver to you the professional service that you require. South Wilts falconry pride ourselves on promoting falconry as a traditional country sport and are dedicated in preserving this ancient field sport and would like to see it continue long into the future.
