Qatar Falconry

Qatar falcons

In our second article on falconry Fran Gillespie, author of Discovering Qatar, writes about falconry in Qatar.

She takes us through from the trapping of the birds just before the hunting season, their training, and the hunting of the Arab falconer's favourite prey, the Houbara - and we finish off with a video about breeding falcons in the Gulf.

For the full article check out: Qatar Falconry.
