This is a great couple of hours' worth of experience. It's very informative and hands-on. I got to fly Charlie, the Harris hawk. I heartily recommend this.

The whole family went out with Jay and Charlie, a beautiful Harris hawk. Jay is a really nice guy and helpful as well as knowledgeable. Seeing Charlie fly and come to you is a great experience. Thoroughly enjoyed and recommend.

We would highly recommend going! Jay and his birds are spectacular. We had a great time, and Jay really made us feel welcome, especially our 6 year old daughter. We will definitely come again the next time we are in Bath!

Hi. Thanks for taking the time to give us a review. It was a pleasure to meet you all and your daughter was a natural. I'll think of you every time I go through one of those gates. Hope to see you next time you visit the UK. More

Enjoyed our hawk flying experience, but were slightly disappointed we didn't get to see the owls too.

Hello. Thanks for posting a review for us. I'm a bit confused as to why you didn't see the Owls. They're one of the first thing you see as you come down the path. If ever you're down this way in the future, just ask and I'll make sure you get to see them. More

Today, we had the pleasure of meeting Jay and Mogwai the Harrison Hawk.... As practically all the other reviews express, today's experience was something 'not to miss'...I mean really 'not to miss'..... From the moment we met Jay, our learning experience began.. We began a journey of connecting with nature that will blow your mind... His love for his birds... More

Beautiful countryside, very friendly and informative handler/owner, and magestic birds up close and personal--epic! Best day out we have had in a long time. It is well worth the trip to feed, hold and touch these beautiful birds. Great way to spread conservation awareness!

Our experience with Charlie the Harris Hawk and his owner, Jay, was one of a kind, informative, and delightful. We have an 8-year-old and a 12-year-old, and they were able to participate without hesitation. Charlie was extremely well trained and Jay ensured we were all understanding of safe interaction with the hawk beforehand. We met Jay at his lovely cottage... More

Wasn't sure the weather was going to be in my favour today, and had I been on time it wouldn't have been! The traffic was terrible but despite arriving late I was still afforded the full Hawk Walk / Flying Experience. I had a great time walking with / flying the hawk and chatting to Jay.

We booked for Saturday the 19th of July, but unfortunately the weather was not in our favor: it was raining cats & dogs, with lightning and thunder. The children were really disappointed that the Hawk Walk was cancelled that day, but Jay offered us to come the next day, his regular day off. We really enjoyed the walk with him... More
