As a special treat from our boss we got to try a bit of falconry. Initially I was dubious as I thought it would be mostly demonstrations of birds of prey with personal participation for only one of the group if we were lucky. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this was not the case as we had a... More

Hi Jacky Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. I'm glad you had a good time. It's always a pleasure for me too to see others enjoying our birds. I don't think I've ever been called a gentleman before. Thanks again Jay More

Booked this for my mums birthday and was no doubt the best thing we done the whole time we were in bath. So glad I booked this everything about the experience was perfect, the weather, the host and of course not forget the bird himself. There is nothing better than meeting someone that loves and cares for animals as much... More

A really enjoyable, educational and personal experience. It was great to do something a bit different, and be out in beautiful countryside with the hawks!

Thanks to Jay and Charlie for a fantastic time. It was a birthday treat for me and my mate Angela and we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Both Charlie and the setting were stunning. I've never been so close to a bird of prey, he even perched on my head and shoulder. Jay was really great and very knowledgable. It's an... More

Really glad we were able to spend time with Jay and Charlie during our 2 day trip to bath. After the short trip to the outskirts of the town centre, we were able to walk through the pretty countryside with Jay while Charlie the Hawk flew above us between the trees. When we reached the more open areas, we were... More

It started nicely, as the weather was perfect, sunny and slight winds. I was very keen on doing it, my girlfriend was a bit worried. We were welcomed by the very friendly Jay, who introduced us to the basic of falconry, and to the naughty Charlie, a beautiful Harris Hawk. We had a BLAST of an experience, both me, the... More

If you plan to Stay in Bath, there's no reason not to do this. The short cab ride is only 12 pounds. After a short briefing by Jay we were off through the woods to a large field where the hawk was able to stretch his wings. A small offering of food is all he needs to come swooping in.... More

We were lucky in that the weather was perfect for on the day we did this. As it was only my husband and myself with Jay who runs the experience we were given a unique experience flying a hawk which even let us stroke it's chest. I would recommend this to anyone with the slightest interest in falconry as I... More

Our family spent the afternoon with Jay (owner) and Charlie (Harris hawk) and we had a brilliant time. Undeterred by the wet muddy winters day we had an awesome time. We walked Charlie to a local copse and clearing to fly. Jay is very knowledgeable and provides a good commentary whilst you do all the flying. Lots of other birds... More
