Comments from Sir Terence Clark - 

Rutba
 
When exploring the western frontier town of Rutba for vestiges of the old British Nairn Bus Company I was introduced to a famed local hunter with falcons and Salukis called 'Dalli'. He was a real character and spent most of the winter months hunting gazelle alive to help stock a reservation not far from the town. He would use his Saluqis to run the gazelle to the point of exhaustion when he could collect them and put them in the back of his pickup.  

 

 

 

 

About Us

The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
