I’m currently learning how to lure fly our Peregrine Falcon Khan. We have a leather lure that we swing around and send out to Khan as he flies by. If he catches it, he wins. And Khan always wins!
He’s the veteran when it comes to the game, I’ve only been flying him for a few months and am lucky if I get more than a few passes.
Today we went up to Georgia’s Heights. I flew him there and got an incredible ten passes! It was brilliant. Khan was very puffed by the end and I think a little shocked … seeing me he probably expected a very short game.
Khan isn’t in every show but if wind suits you may get the chance to see him. If you ask me, it’s well worth coming and testing your luck!
