My name is Alec Shearer, I have been a professional falconer most of my working life.
I was Head Falconer with the largest Bird Control company in Europe until March 2014 when I was made redundant.
Birds of Prey have always been a major part of my life but it all started when I was 10 years old as a child in a small village in Bedfordshire, I was the one that looked after wildlife that had
been injured in some way or another, a young Tawny Owl was struck by a car and was brought to me, luckily it soon recovered but that was the moment I fell in love with these majestic creatures
of the air.
Since then my career and passion has evolved around these birds over the years. I have worked at many Falconry Centres flying and caring for all types of raptors from Little Owls to the
largest Eagles & Vultures.
I have flown and displayed Birds of Prey at most major County & Country Shows over the years in the U.K and Northern Ireland.
I have also supplied birds for T.V and films and been on many radio shows.
I now live in beautiful Stalham, Norfolk and you may find me flying birds of prey at Africa Alive
during the summer months.
Now in my 60's, I'm very lucky to be able to say that I fly Birds of Prey for a living on a daily basis and feel privileged to be in their company.
If I had to pick one group of birds as a favorite it would have to be the Falcons, the sheer speed and maneuverability is breathtaking !!
I am also a fully qualified Pest Controller although I specialise in Bird Control. If you have a pest related enquiry please get in touch.
