Dan Mercer Falconry

Mercer Falconry – Dan started working with birds as his first job, after finishing school, and then while studying animal science at college he worked with a local falconer flying birds for displays throughout the summers and using the birds for pest control throughout the winters. Dan then went on to work in falconry centres, doing displays and experiences with a wide variety of birds.

Combining knowledge from his studies with a traditional falconry approach, Dan now has his own team of birds and is proudly involved with projects such as the British Falconry and Raptor Fair, and a Future with Falconry. Dan believes falconry plays a large role in the conservation of raptors and therefore thinks it is very important to educate the public to create a long lasting positive future within falconry.
