Lord Tweedsmuir regarded falcons as avian aristocracy: ‘No hawk regards you as a master. At the best, they regard you as an ally who will provide for them and care for them and introduce them to some good hunting. You only have to look at the proud head of the peregrine falcon to realise that. In reality you become their slave.’ (Tweedsmuir, ‘Always a Countryman’ pg 128)
