My partner and I visited June 2014. What an absolutely fantastic experience. Adrian's knowledge, skill, understanding and care of the animals is inspiring. He knows his stuff. Unfortunately the weather wasn't in our favour and we got totally drenched but the birds still were great. Lovely to be able to get up an close with the various breeds of birds... More

I took my wife here for the Meet The Birds Experience. Just fantastic, and ideal for all ages. Adrian is a genuine expert, and his passion shines through. He ensured everyone was able to experience each bird personally, relaxing the more nervous while keeping us all entertained. If you enjoy birds of prey, you have to visit. The birds' welfare... More

Adrian is an expert in his field, very knowledgeable, interesting, very professional and passionate about his birds. If you are looking for a different and amazing experience, book now, you will...

I got vouchers for meet the birds and we decided to use them in April for a birthday treat. I can honestly say, I've never had a more pleasurable, knowledgeable and exhilarating experience. You can see how passionate Adrian is about his work, and his knowledge is amazing and he seems to be able to share the right things at... More

My wife and I got "Meet the Birds" vouchers for Christmas from son and daughter-in-law and booked for Good Friday morning as we were on our way to Crieff Hydro for a wedding. What a fascinating and enjoyable couple of hours. Adrian's knowledge must be second to none as are his falconry skills! An amazing range of birds of prey... More

I had booked this as a surprise for my husbands "big" birthday and it certainly didn't fail to impress. Adrian was so knowledgable and informative and throughout the half day session we saw and my husband flew numerous birds as well as learning about the breeding programme and how the birds are trained. Even if you go as a spectator... More

Had a great half day 'Meet The Birds' session with Phoenix Falconry. Adrian was very knowledgeable and engaging. I would certainly recommend this to anyone interested in birds of prey. Only gripe is the fact that we never attended the 'introductory course' that people are advised to go on before attending the 'Meet the Birds' session. Adrian was quick to... More

We recently visited Phoenix Falconry for a half-day adventure with Adrian and the birds. The knowledge they shared and the skills they demonstrated kept us engaged and amazed. We were able to help train one of the younger birds while another did the hunting. My husband really wanted to experience falconry and he was not disappointed. The crew at Phoenix... More

While falconry has always fascinated me, I wasn't sure what to expect. But whatever I had in mind, the experiences at Phoenix far exceeded my expectations. While it was a little expensive, we opted for the Falconry Adventure, a full day of learning, handling the birds, and then a falcon hunt in the afternoon. If it's in your budget, I... More
