Breeding Birds of Prey

The ancient and noble art of Falconry - or the Sport of Kings -  is at the heart of a centre dedicated to breeding and conservation of raptors based on a livestock farm in Carmarthenshire.  The International Wildlife Consultants business founded by Dr Nick Fox, who earlier this year was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Honours List for his work. It's breeding time at the farm so there are a number of new and hungry chicks and decidedly broody adult falcons.  Dr Fox guides Rachael Garside around and shares his interest in these beautiful birds and his passion for conservation.
