How did you start your Falconry journey?

My Great Grandad was a gamekeeper in Essex back in the day. I first saw ferrets which I thought were cats! This was when my love for the outdoors became my life. I travelled a lot due to my Dad being in the RAF but eventually went out with a friend of a friend with a Harris Hawk and the rest is history!
