Default Anyone in North Cornwall?

Hi all,
I've been interested in getting my first bird for a LONG time, and finally have the opertunity (location, space, time) to commit!
I was looking for someone in the North Cornwall area who could potentially offer some mentoring, guidance, wisdom and some of their free time to help me get started?
I'm on the North coast near Bude, willing to travel if there's anyone out there who could help me out?

I've had no luck finding any local clubs. There was one near Bodmin but as far as I can tell it's not currently active. Any club/group suggestions would also very appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Rob, We have a group of local falconers that meet up on the third Wednesday of each month At the westleigh inn just outside of Bideford. We call it a club but in reality it's just a group of friends Who meet up for a meal and a pint and a chat about birds amongst other things. As long as you're a sound sort of guy I'm sure someone will be willing to help you out. Atb Chris
