Fantastic time with lots of different birds, and Barry and luce who both have a wealth of knowledge about the birds, their history, how they are conserving and rehabilitating them. Well worth every penny! Cannot recommend it enough!

Falconry was on my bucket list, so we booked for my 'when I'm 64' birthday treat! We were not disappointed. What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon....... Hawks, owls, eagles, falcons plus the surrounding wildlife and beautiful landscape........
