MEET OUR BIRDS

Billie

Lanner Falcon (Falco biarmicus)

 

Billie is almost a year old now and our second youngest member of the team.

She came to us from a breeder at 12 weeks old as a male, but it was soon apparent

that ‘he’ was a ’she’, hence the name - just playing safe! She flies beautifully but is

very nervous towards anyone other than Julian, so she is still a work in progress.

Lanner falcons are native to Africa and are agile, quick-turning birds due to their

very broad wingspan for a falcon and are known to catch various small birds such

as Weaver Birds.
