The Hampshire Hawk Walk
Harris Hawk Team
Trinity is a 4 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 always much 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 to fly to children as her wingspan is over 3ft. She likes to hunt and chase when the opportunity arises and also flying to people for her food.
Sherlock is the newest member of 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.
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 !!
