    Great family experience
    My daughter and I visited today with my grandchildren aged 14 and 9. This was a birthday present for my daughter but it was as much a great gift for us all. Our expert was Taz. She made us feel comfortable from the start and quickly judged the dynamics of our group so that each one of us would get the very best experience. She catered so sympathetically for the grandchildren, one of whom was very nervous and the other a little more adventurous. Both girls agree they’ve had the best time and would love to go back some time. Taz is very knowledgeable, managing to explain so much to our mixed knowledge group and showing throughout, her love and understanding of these great birds. She wasn’t at all fazed if they didn’t feel like ‘performing’ she skilfully adjusted the experience with a superb sense of humour so we knew the birds were in charge. Great- just how it should be. I thought the cost of the experience was very reasonable and the time flew by- no pun intended.

    Great Experience
    Took part in the 'Meet the Birds' package. A well organised, educational and fulfilling experience that incorporated a number of birds from owls to eagles. Simon the instructor made the day a very memorable experience as he imparted a wealth of knowledge in the main arena and woodland walk. Highly recommended afternoon activity.

    What a fantastic and unique experience
    What a fantastic experience. We were a family of 5 adults and this was our first experience of Falconry ever (apart from displays). We each had 2 turns with all the birds (an owl, buzzard, harrier and eagle) and Taz (our Falconer) coaxed the harrier to demonstrate his amazing precision flying skills, he flew so close his wings brushed our faces etc. All the birds had different personalities, and Taz gave us a lot of interesting information about all the raptors. Even those in our group who were a little nervous at first were totally confident and loving it very quickly. I would certainly recommend this as a family (or adults) fun activity for its 'wow' factor. It was just amazing, thank you Taz and the birds.

    Amazing experience & value
    Thank you to Pete at Cheshire Falconry for truly fantastic Junior Owl Experience. My seven year old daughter is very shy and was nervous going in but Pete did a great job of setting them at ease, talking them through each handling and judging how the kids were feeling. The birds are so beautiful and each showed their unique character during the flights and talks. Pete shared a lot of interesting owl info but he balanced this with good questions and interaction with the audience. We felt privileged to have met the birds here and the value for money was excellent. We will be back as I now have my eye on a falcon flight myself!

    An Unforgettable Encounter
    We booked the family falconry encounter for 4 adults as a birthday gift for our daughter. Pete was our Falconer and he was professional, knowledgeable, entertaining and kindness itself. One of our group is blind and Pete managed the encounter in such a way that she did not miss out on anything; it was a truly magical experience (even for our daughter's boyfriend who was scared of birds!). The 3 owls we met (Flash, Casper and Walter) were wonderful but the star was the Harris Hawk (Nugget) who stole the show with his flights through the, 'human tunnel'. Thank you Pete for such a memorable experience and your ability to adapt the session for a disabled guest, it takes a true professional to do that.

We had a brilliant morning at Cheshire Falconry. We looked at the owls, vultures, hawks and eagles before making our way to the flying arena. We did the Raptor Experience and encountered Dibble the Tawny Owl, Sam the Barn Owl and Larry the Harris Hawk. We learned so much from Taz who led the session and I would certainly recommend a visit.
Super morning with the extra bonus that it was a glorious sunny day!
