Merlin in China falconry
Merlin's are favoured as street hawks and flown after sparrows. The odd thing is that they told me that Kestrels a species very much like our European Kestrel is favoured above the Merlin. Which is reverse to our way of thinking in the west and I was keen to see one of these Kestrels in action.

So far I have not managed to witness this and it remains a quest for a future trip to China.
