Static Demonstrations of Birds of Prey

These notes have been prepared by the Countryside Alliance and the Hawk Board in consultation with other groups interested and experienced in falconry.

These notes are considered necessary, particularly in today’s political climate
for field sports. In drawing attention to the protected species used in falconry, there is a risk of stimulating a demand for participation that cannot be satisfied.

It is hoped that this leaflet will be helpful to both Show Organisers and Static Display Teams in setting out what is expected of those responsible for demonstrations. Displays must be well organised and well executed.
