Lanner Falcon

(Falco biarmicus) - 'Hoplite'

 

One of the oldest species of heirofalcons, Lanners have been used in falconry for more than a thousand years.

 

They are especially prized for their ability to capture other birds, such as pigeons or grouse.  Lanners are fast, agile flyers & not afraid to follow prey into the undergrowth. Unlike Peregrines, who are famed for the 200 mph dives (called "stoops" in falconry), Lanners use a horizontal hunting style, coming at their prey low, flat & fast! 

Generating speeds of up to 90 mph using wingbeats alone.

'Hoplite' who was hatched in May 2019, is not being trained in our usual style of close dipping in & out to a lure. He is being trained to go up! The goal is 5000 ft, as high as the cloud base, to then "wait on", before showing off that bullet falcon stoop back down to earth.
