Recommended. Not cheap but well worth it. Something very different that i will remember for a long time to come. Mark was extremely knowledgeable and easy to get on with. He answered all the questions that were put to him. He organised a booking for me at very short notice. Having the Hawk fly to your arm was an amazing... More

We had an amazing hawk walk and owl experience. Mark and his wife were fantastic with our 5 children. We all learnt so much and had such a great time. The hawks, owls, falcons, vultures and ferrets were so content and well looked after. Well worth a visit, we will be going back! X

A history lesson on the Albrighton estate on the way to the woods, accompanied by Mark, "Buddy"the Harris Hawk and the two dogs this was a fantastic couple of hours, interesting, educational and amazing. Mark is a very good host, both personable and extremely... More

Was given a present of a Halk Walk for my birthday as ive always wanted to do it. Staff were friendly and the sorrounding countryside was great. As for the walk itself, it was an amazing experience handling the Hawk, and to see the full power and presence of it in action was awesome. Would definatly reccomend Battlefield Falconry Centre...

We went on a trip to Battlefield Falconry Centre and upon arrival we were welcomed by a member of staff named Mark Southall. He was very welcoming and made me feel important because he was kind and understanding. He was very enthusiastic as he took us on a tour of the centre and a delightful Hawk Walk. Along with a...

We were looking for an activity to share with my 89-year-old father-in-law, and this was absolutely perfect! He is an avid bird-watcher, but neither my husband or I are, and we all had a thrilling afternoon. Mark and Val are excellent hosts. We got to see all sorts of birds, helped feed some owlets, and handle several owls and a... More

Had a great morning flying a Harris Hawk through the woods, and then Handling Owls. All the staff were friendly and extremely well informed. I would highly recommend a visit to all people young or old.

Well worth the hour's drive to get here! Took the hawk walk with Mark, which was followed by handling of, and an informative chat about, the owls at the site. Staff were friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable, all in all a great morning out!
