Über den Autor: A.J. Hallgarth was inspired to engage in the art of falconry after reading a A Kestrel for a Knave by Barry Hines. Growing up in an industrial city in North England, he spent much of his free time learning about falconry from books until he proclaimed himself an expert at the tender age of eight. After much determination and convincing, he was finally able to aquire his first bird - a kestrel, with defiant eyes, the bloom on feather and a sharp menacing-looking beak. Adrian and Ruby started their training together, and fueled the fire that has kept him a practicing falconer for the majority of his life. As a professional falconry instructor, he has taught hundreds of students and has worked in many countries. He and his wife run Phoenix Falconry in Scotland, where they, along with their team of instructors, manage an impressive collection of more than 140 birds.
