Black Mountains Falconry
Roger & June James have been Professional Falconers for over 30 years, and have given Falconry Displays throughout the UK and abroad, flying nearly all the species of Birds of Prey that can be trained, from large Eagles to tiny Pygmy Owls. These Displays can be seen at most of the large County Shows in Wales, (and even in England!).
At their Centre in Abergavenny, they offer Falconry Courses to suit all ages and abilities, as well as Stag & Hen Parties, Birthday Parties, and other Group Activities, which often include Archery.
With many of their birds they have appeared in Films, Operas: Rigoletto, and Television: The One Show, Spring-watch, and Countryfile. Their Film “Flying with Kites” with Iolo Williams won two Welsh Baftas, and the same Red Kites can be flown by their clients on the hills around Abergavenny.
On the Educational side, they provide School Visits, Care-Home Visits, and “After-Dinner” Talks, as well as offering assistance and advice to Police Wildlife Officers and Veterinary Nurses.
Of course they both still hunt with their Falcons during the season, and Roger is the Chairman of the Welsh Hawking Club, which has members throughout the country.
