Terrific life affirming experience
Jun 2021 • Couples
My wife bought me some vouchers for the Hawk Walk as a birthday gift. It sounded like an interesting thing to do as we’re both interested in wildlife generally.
We arranged to meet Glen near some woodland and off we went with our Harris Hawk for a stroll through the woods. There were just the two of us and Glen so we had plenty of time flying the Hawk. We moved around to different locations and Glen was very knowledgeable and explained all the different bird behaviours - as you’d expect from someone who’d studied falconry in Mongolia!
We returned to the meeting point and had some time with one of the owls and a falcon. Incidentally, the birds are very gentle. They’re keen on their food - not you - and are very tolerant of humans. All in all we had a little over an hour and a half.
Beautiful birds, lovely countryside and a very knowledgeable and personable guide. Terrific life affirming experience and highly recommended.
(Just a point - the route isn’t long but is hilly and along woodland paths. If you have any physical issues, let Glen know beforehand and he’ll modify the route to suit you. )

Try this hawk walk. It’s amazing.

Glen met us with his beautiful Harris Hawk.
As soon as we left the car park we were hands on with the hawk.
Glen explained things as we walked through the beautiful woodland paths near the river Tyne.
The time passed really quickly even though we were out for a really good length of time.
Back at the van we were introduced to an amazing Indian eagle owl and had great photo opportunities.
I would recommend this to everyone. There was a little up and down hill walking but I’m sure this could be adapted to be on level ground.
We thoroughly enjoyed this amazing experience.

What amazing experience this was for our whole family. From my three and eight year old daughters and my husband included we were amazed. Glenn has a wealth of knowledge that made our day exciting and educational. I would highly recommend this gem of a day.

Amazing
May 2021 • Couples
We had an amazing time yesterday flying Horatio the Harris Hawk whilst walking through some beautiful woodland. The whole experience was brilliant from start to finish. Glen was so knowledgable, answering all our questions, telling us so much about Horatio and Harris Hawks and then even throwing in a bit of history about the woodland. He clearly has the best job and clearly loves what he does and he made the whole experience really relaxing. At the end we got to handle two owls which just made the whole experience. We would definitely do this again and I would recommend this for anyone who loves wildlife.

An enjoyable experience for all the family
Sep 2020
We had a fabulous morning out in the woods with Glen and Horatio the Hawk who is a real character. Walking along by the river with Horatio swooping down for food was excellent fun and Glen gave us a knowledgeable commentary on the birds' way of life, eating habits, communication and special abilities.
Walking back to the car with Horatio perched on my fist after a well earned snack, we had the chance to meet Hermes from the same clutch and the beautiful owls Sabina and baby Marty.
I would throughly recommend this as an activity for all ages, we have had a really tough year and it really lifted our spirits spending time in a lovely setting with these wonderful birds.

An absolute must for bird of prey lovers. My husband and I took the kids on this hawk walk experience. Glenn was incredibly knowledgable and it was an educational and fantastic interactive experience walking, learning, handling and feeding the Harris Hawk. Would love to do this again. The kids haven’t stopped talking about it. Thank you.

Amazing walk in the woods 🦅
Feb 2020 • Family
We have just finished the extended hawk walk with owl handling with Glenn, and it was fabulous. We walked Horatio the Harris Hawk, my 9 and 11 year old loved being able to handle such an amazing bird for over an hour. The beautiful eagle owl and barn owl we held at the end of the walk were a special treat for my daughter who loves owls.

Glenn was great at explaining everything, and my kids love birds of prey even more now!
