Mark Parker – the Silver Fox

Mark Parker (aka The Silver Fox) has been involved with Falconry for nearly 45 years and many will know him from the International Centre for Birds of Prey, Newent, Gloucestershire, where he was Head Falconer for many years up until January 2017
He has been making equipment and teaching falconry in a professional capacity for over 22 years and is highly regarded within the Bird of Prey community as one of the best and most experienced falconry instructors in the UK.

In recent years, there has been an increased demand for many of the falconry items that he makes, notably his blocks, bow perches, lure sticks, swivels and false aylmeri anklets. He pays great attention to detail and produces high quality products. He is very passionate about falconry, its history and of the equipment that he produces. Silver Fox Falconry was born out of Mark`s desire to develop a company that can supply falconers and bird of prey keepers with top quality, bespoke, equipment that is made in the UK. In addition to this, developing a Falconry School and specialised courses is a longer term project that hopefully will be achieved in the future.
