Patience. Trust. Caution. The Royal Falconer must embody all of these traits along with a true feeling for nature, being able to understand the mind of a wild animal like the fierce falcon. The cheers of the crowd inspire not only the falconer, but the falcon, as well. Stop by our castles' mews to take a closer look at these majestic birds.
