The Hampshire Hawk Walk
Harris Hawk Team
Trinity is a 5 year old female Harris Hawk and despite her size a real softy and enjoys a chat and can be very vocal.
Trinity is much bigger than the boys as female birds of prey are generally larger than the males and she is the boss of the group known as the Alpha. She is a lovely hawk to take out on a walk and also good for photography and handling as she is very calm, though she is a little to big and heavy to fly to children. She likes to hunt and chase when the opportunity arises and also flying to people for her food.
Sherlock is a great addition to the Hampshire Hawk Walks team, having joined us in January 2021. He has been part of a display and pest control team at a falconry centre in Hampshire. Sherlock has lots of experience of flying with members of the public and of doing displays in front of large crowds, he is 5 years old and has a love of chasing pigeons though like all my hawks he hates dogs and will sit in a tree and scream at them if we meet a dog out in the parkland. Sherlock is super fast and loves to show off his flying skills.
Casper is the newest addition to the team and is a 6 year old male Harris hawk. Casper has been living in north London and working on the film sets at Elstree studios, clearing pigeons and birds from the sites before filming. He is settling in well and seems to love the large open spaces at Chawton House. He is a chatty little fellow and grumbles away to you when on the fist and at home in his enclosure.
Neo is a 3 year old male Harris Hawk, he loves people and is great with children and very calm, though being a youngster can be a bit naughty sometimes and will go off and chase things during a hawk walk because he loves hunting, he likes to land on your shoulder on occasion as it makes a good perch.
Senior Harris Hawk
London is a 22 year old male Harris Hawk and loves being out and about with people. He has worked with the public for most of his life and is quite a cheeky chappy, like all birds of prey he is still a wild animal however he is a very friendly hawk. Great for those that are a bit nervous, though on the odd occasion he will sit in a tree and not come down, just to remind you who's boss !!
