MEET OUR BIRDS
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.
