Good Evening Everyone-

Clarification on current Avian Influenza restrictions

Where mandatory housing is in force as part of an AIPZ, as is currently the case in Norfolk, Sussex and parts of Essex, a bird of prey or multiple birds of prey that are already kept in the same facility, can be flown to meet bird’s welfare requirements for up to an hour each day.

Further restrictions apply if the birds are located in a disease control zone:

• In a 3km PZ, birds of prey can be exercised once preliminary cleaning and disinfection has been completed at the Infected Premises and the initial epidemiological investigations have been completed.

• In a 10km SZ, one bird (falcon/hawk etc.) or multiple birds that already kept in the same facility, are still permitted to be flown where it is essential for their welfare, but you must avoid direct contact with wild birds (i.e. catching quarry) because birds of prey are also susceptible to avian influenza.

• Bird gatherings are banned within disease control zones, hence birds that are not already housed together/on the same premises should not be flown together.

Outside of disease control zones, and in the AIPZ excluding Norfolk, Sussex and Essex, birds of prey may be flown without restriction. However, keepers are advised to consider the local conditions and take a precautionary approach to how long they allow their birds out to exercise, dependent upon their local environment, while taking account of their bird’s welfare and need to exercise. You are advised not to feed any wild shot or hunted wildfowl, due to the heightened risk of avian influenza infection in those wild birds.

If a trained bird of prey is lost and/or has contact with wild birds, the following should be followed:

• the bird should be kept completely separate from your other birds for 14 days, including being fed and exercised;

• you should cleanse and disinfect footwear and change clothing before and after dealing with the bird;

• good practice would be to tend to the ‘escaped’ bird last so there is less chance of potentially spreading any virus to your other birds.

Please step up your bio security precautions.

In memory of the queen and all she has done for the world we would like to take this opportunity to share the tribute paid to HRH by Dr Nick Fox at Vowley.

Fellow Falconers, Ladies and Gentlemen
We are taking time out from our sporting activities today to celebrate the life of a remarkable lady, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second. Probably for most of you, you have known no other Monarch. Seventy years on the throne is a long time.
I was born a Georgian, but nobody in our village had a TV in those days and I have no memories of her Coronation. The War was just over and we still had food rationing and hand-me-down clothes. But we had a new young Queen and the whole world was changing. We soon had the Swinging Sixties, and another five decades followed. The Cold War. Men on the moon. Computers. The Internet. Climate change.
Regardless of whether you are a Monarchist or a Republican, this lady deserves our greatest respect. I don’t think any one of us could have done such a good job as she did.
And now she is gone.
There are two milestones in life, on the path to becoming an adult. One is when you first have children of your own, and one is when you lose your parents. Suddenly you have to be the one who is responsible.
The Queen was like a Mother to us, unobtrusive but always there. A reassuring support in times of trouble. She had her own share of family difficulties, but throughout her own personal trials, she maintained a dignity and steadfastness as Monarch to her Country and the Commonwealth. She always had the long view and the welfare of her people and country at heart. She did not have to face the transience of an electoral term, nor did she have any real power. But she was always there, and on our side.
Politicians with their weaselly avoidance of answering the difficult questions, met their match with our Queen. She was not afraid to say to them what needed saying. Oh to be a fly on the wall when Prime Ministers had to face their weekly audiences with her, like naughty schoolboys outside the Head Master’s office! I am sure that there were many times when the politicians were grateful that their private conversations were not recorded in Hansard!
Literally 48 hours before she died, and barely able to stand, the Queen was doing her duty, seeing out Boris Johnson and welcoming the new Prime Minister, Elizabeth Truss. She continued her duties for 36 years after her supposed retirement age.
But when not on royal duties she was a Countrywoman, keen on her horses, dogs and the land itself. I attended the All the Queen’s Horses event at Windsor in 2012, celebrating her Diamond Jubilee. To see all those horses from different disciplines going through their paces, with a finale of the Kings Troops pulling the gun carriages, was enough to bring tears to the eyes.
Other countries can keep their tin pot Presidents who come and go and live only for their next election. We have enduring roots to our past and to our countryside. We take our sports seriously, but also with a twinkle and a smile. We know only too well those familiar old imposters – Triumph and Disaster – and we treat them both the same. You will see them this afternoon, in the Open Hunt Race.
The Queen was not a Falconer, and I never knew her personally. But she and her family enjoyed all country sports and she was thrilled when His Royal Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed, now President of the United Arab Emirates, presented her with a white gyrfalcon for her Jubilee. Bred at Sheikh Mohammed’s stud in UK, the Queen named him ‘Diamond’ and he was returned to us, together with other royal falcons, for breeding. Diamond too is now a part of her history and I have brought him here today for you to see.
Our new Monarch, King Charles the Third, is also a countryman, keen on country sports and farming, as well as the wider issues of conservation, environment and heritage. I have had various dealings with him, on falconry and cultural issues. When we were preparing the submission to UNESCO fifteen years ago, the question naturally came up: why can’t Britain be included? After all, falconry has been practised in UK for many years. Twenty four other countries are inscribed. Why not us?
On our hawking grounds we have a statue of a falconer dated 670 AD, before England was even established as a country. Falconry is deeply embedded in our culture.
I wrote to the Minister for Culture, Jeremy Hunt MP, to enquire why UK has not signed UNESCO’s ICH Convention. He wriggled out of it by claiming that one cannot define ‘Intangible Cultural Heritage’. But UNESCO had already done that for us. What happened was, while Britain was busy promoting a ‘multi-cultural’ society, this was done at the expense of our own indigenous culture. It’s our habit in Britain to under-state ourselves. One should not blow one’s own trumpet. So while politicians celebrated other ethnic groups and cultures, our own received little recognition. Instead it became a kicking boy for politicians scoring points against one another.
The Hunting Act was never about hunting itself; it was about game playing in Westminster and the Queen was given no option but to give it Royal Assent. Since that Act was passed in 2005, hunting has continued as before. It has been the biggest and longest civil disobedience in the entire Queen’s reign.
One thing that struck me about UNESCO was that, while History is about the past, Heritage is about the future. It is living culture that we pass on to the next generation, like a baton. Nor is it something fossilised and static, but rather it must continue to evolve.
The racing you see here at Vowley is not Falconry as such. Falconry is a hunting sport. But it engages with most of the cultural skills needed to be a good Falconer, and it is a way to engage the younger generation. At some of the race meetings here at Vowley, I have been the only one with white hair. This is as it should be. Let’s welcome the young. Fresh blood, new ideas. The best way to preserve the past is to embrace change.
This little celebration today, to remember the Queen, is not about religion, or race, or cultures. More than 80 countries practise falconry. It transcends the religions, races and cultures. Actually, it is older than any of the received religions. Our ancestors were hawking long before Buddhism, Christianity or Islam. It requires huge personal daily commitment on behalf of its practitioners. It is a form of religion of its own. So we are in the process of getting falconry recognised as a ‘Protected Belief’. This is a legal category, giving adherents certain rights in practising their belief. Google it when you get home.
Falconry is under threat as never before. Most threats are peripheral. Death by a thousand cuts. We lose quarry licences. Mountain Hares become protected. Pest licences are restricted. Often the changes are not aimed at us at all; we are just collateral damage because we are so small. The Welsh government have come out against shooting as a leisure activity and Labour plan to do the same when next in government. This would most easily be implemented by banning game rearing, as has happened in some western European countries.
Who would have thought that you would need a licence to catch a crow or a pigeon, as if they were endangered species? As Britain becomes more and more urbanised and as social media can be used to sway and rally public opinion, without any first hand knowledge, country voices get drowned out.
For falconry to continue in any recognisable form, we must be cohesive and support one another. This means supporting our representatives on the Hawk Board and clubs who are at the battle front, dealing with government departments and the media. Politics, sadly, is not evidence-led. It simply follows perceived public opinions which means that, while some minorities received headline status, others like ours, are trodden on.
Often we are our own worst enemies, airing our trivial grievances between each other on the social media, rather than creating a unifying influence. Before you press ‘Post’ on your Instagram or forum, ask yourself: Am I making a positive contribution, or am I just being negative, a disparaging doom and gloom merchant?
Tomorrow is the Queen’s funeral. It is the end of an era, and the beginning of a new one. I would like to say thankyou to the Queen for all the years of steadfast service she has given to us. She has set an example for us all to follow.
God Save the Queen!

30/11/2021

Hello Everyone.
As some of you may now be aware we have had to make the difficult decision to increase our prices and change the free delivery cut off. This is not something we wanted to do but with ever increasing costs we have no option but to do so.
Staff are already working tirelessly to keep the wheels of the business turning and whilst we appreciate that the increased costs are not ideal, staff abuse will not be tolerated in any form!

***IMPORTANT NOTICE***
We are constantly seeing posts on social media groups regarding the flying of birds after Wildfowl disregarding the advice of APHA.
Please see the APHA guidelines strictly advising against flying at any wild birds due to the increase in outbreaks of Avian Flu.
Honeybrook and many other organisations cannot stress enough the importance of following this to protect the future of Falconry.

Good evening .
There has been a confirmed case of Avian Flu in Worcestershire.
Whilst this doesnt affect us as a business, it is paramount to the welfare of your birds that you take extra care and precautions with regards to the cleanliness and measures you implement to safeguard against the disease.
If anyone would like any guidance on this matter, please read the enclosed article. Stay safe everyone.

The risk of public health from the virus is very low and poses a very low food safety risk for UK consumers

27/08/2021

Hello everyone.

We hope you are all staying safe.
The office will be closed Bank Holiday Monday so if you are wanting an order for delivery runs next week, please call us today to place them.
A reminder to collection customers that we are still operating the pre order system and ask that you refrain from entering the office and call us to let us know you have arrived to pick up your goods.
Many thanks to our customers for being so understanding during the difficult times of Covid. Our staff really appreciate your cooperation when they are trying to do their best.🙂

Many thanks

CUSTOMER NOTICE

To all bird keepers:

Following talks with many organisations we strongly advise against feeding ANY wild fowl to your birds.

Avian Flu is still current and is looking likely to be endemic in the UK. It can show no symptoms in ducks and geese. Avian Influenza will still be viable after being frozen for 12 months, falcons have died after being fed frozen defrosted mallard and widgeon. By feeding wildfowl you are putting the future of falconry at risk. APHA are currently investigating how captive falcons have caught Avian Influenza. Every outbreak causes severe economic damage to the UK’s poultry industry. Every outbreak results in UK companies being unable to export poultry products until the outbreak is brought under control. The losses to the UK are considerable and we can avoid any further outbreaks in captive raptors simply by not feeding wildfowl. There is no cure in raptors, symptoms have been described as death.

Based on the above, we will not be stocking Wood Pigeons for sale for the foreseeable future until safe to do so.

This is not something to be ignored and we hope you take note of this.

The Honeybrook Team

Good Afternoon,

Can everyone please remember that during this difficult time that we are doing our best to keep on top of everything.

With a shortage of office staff and new procedures with both deliveries and collections, we want to continue to supply you as much as possible.

Abuse to ANY member of staff will not be tolerated and anyone who is verbally or physically abusive will no longer be served by us as a company.

We appreciate this is a stressful time for all but please be kind! There is no need for aggression and abuse.


The Honeybrook Team

24/03/2020

Good Afternoon Everyone.

We are currently experiencing problems with our phone lines!

Please keep trying to call if you are needing to contact us as we are hoping this issue is sorted quickly.

May we also make you aware that we are now limited with office staff due to a number of our staff being very high risk and subsequently having to self isolate to be safe.

Therefore please be patient when trying to call and orders as this is a very stressful time for everyone and we are trying our very best to cope.

23/03/2020

Good evening everyone.
Despite the announcement this evening from the PM, we would like to reassure all customers that we will be continuing all deliveries as normal.
We request again that all orders are paid by card or BACS prior to delivery. Cash on delivery will no longer be accepted.
We will not be requesting signatures for deliveries and where possible orders will be left safe by your specifications to reduce contact with our drivers. Our drivers have been provided with disposable gloves and anti bacterial gel to reduce potential risks.
We also now request that if you plan to pick up any orders from us directly that all orders are phoned through in advance and pre paid by card to reduce contact with office staff. Without staff the business will struggle and we want to minimise the risk to everyone. Upon arrival at the office, we request you phone to announce your arrival giving your name and postcode. A member of office staff will then take your order out to yard staff who will load the goods directly into your car. Thus reducing contact with our employees .
We thank you all for your cooperation during this difficult time and ask that you please keep in mind that this is a very testing time for all staff members who are trying to keep your supplies as normal as possible and would appreciate your understanding.
Many thanks The Honeybrook Team
