What an experience! A thoroughly enjoyable and educational morning with Nigel and Cassius. To get up close and personal with such a beautiful bird was the highlight of our holiday. Thank you! Lisa and Ian

Thank you very much. Please come again. Perhaps to one of our other locations. Lady Macbeth should be back flying soon. She's having a holiday at the moment. You'll be interested in the difference between them! Regards,

Well, you certainly hid your nervousness very well! It is, of course, quite sensible to be wary of a flying thing with claws and a beak landing on your fist. That's where I come in. Although I've only been doing this for fifteen or so...More

Nigel is a welcoming, knowledgeable man who has such enthusiasm and passion for his birds. This enthusiasm is contagious and led to a really enjoyable, hands on experience. Thanks for a great day.

Thank you very much. Glad you enjoyed it. A hawk walk, the way we do it, really is the ultimate hands-on falconry experience. Do come again, to one of our other locations.

Thank you. Glad you enjoyed it. You can't beat getting up close and personal with a bird of prey. As Cassius has worked with people nearly all his eleven years, he is an ideal teacher. Please come again. I have access to several different flying...More

Thank you. Cassius has the ability, I have (not enough) the knowledge. Only fifteen years ,so I’m still learning. A bit like the TT. Come again. Regards, Nigel.

Thank you. We have no age limits for the walks, because everyone can get something from getting up close to the birds. I’m glad you all enjoyed it, please come again, on a walk at one of our other locations. Regards,

We all thoroughly enjoyed our ‘hawk walk’ this morning, especially our 5 year old grandson who was able to put on a glove and let the beautiful Harris Hawk, Cassius, land and take off (with a bit of help from Nigel or his mum). We...More

Yes, kids get a great deal out of meeting the birds. Grown-ups too, of course. Eventually, I hope to persuade the barn owl to fly to customers, which will be quite something. Some way off, yet, though. Come back again next year! Regards, Nigel

Nothing like having a hawk cruise in from a hundred meters to your fist to make you feel special! There is no age limit, lower or upper. So long as people remember the safety tips (which are little more than common sense), there should never...More
