We were lucky enough to have Gary and his beautiful beloved birds of prey to ourselves today. What a fantastic time we had. Gary is a very amiable and interesting man, who treats his feathered friends with the love, care and respect they deserve. We also learnt a lot. I'm absolutely smitten with Finn but all the birds we saw today were amazing. I would highly recommend Stockley Birds of Prey and Gary for a wonderful experience. Thanks so much.

Lovely Day Out!
Dec 2019 • Couples
We visited a while ago and forgot to leave a review so sorry it’s late!

I organised the day for my partners birthday as a surprise, we had admired birds of prey and owls from afar at shows and similar things but never held them or got this up close!
We had a wonderful day! it was very interactive with lots of beautiful birds and very informative!

We got to hold a range of birds of prey and some beautiful owls to!

During flying Buzz (the buzzard), a wild buzzard flew after him trying to attack, luckily Buzz was able to hold his own (I have attached the pictures of him you asked me for, sorry it took so long!)

Would highly recommend, would even go back again myself!

It was great, we loved it!

My husband had a wonderful experience here today. Gary was a very friendly and knowledgeable host. We were lucky enough to get to handle and visit a wide variety of birds with Alex the Indian Eagle owl being the star of the show. Well worth visiting, even a few spots of rain didn't depen the day for us, thank you Gary.

Wow! Don’t miss this.

What a fantastic experience! Gary was so knowledgable and interesting and we were told all about each bird. It was a privilege to be so close to them. I’d been lucky to win the experience and Gary made it extra special by allowing us a behind the scenes Tour of the aviaries. Highly recommended!

What an absolutely amazing experience for both myself and my 13 year old son. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Thankyou Gary. ps even though I'm squeamish I managed with the dead little baby chick's lol that are used for food. Think that's what you call nature eh!

Freshly killed by hand BABY CHICK.
Sep 2020
Well, Gary was very knowledgeable and cares for his birds a lot. But the reason why this rating is so low is because he fed the birds pigeons, chicken and BABY CHICKS. The pigeons were roadkill that he took off the road which is OKAY, I guess. But the thing was he killed the baby chick. It was freshly dead and limp and he showed it to us. He fed the remaining part of the poor chick to Sonny, the Falcon and there was fresh blood. I am not a particular chicken-lover or bird-obsessed fan or anything but taking a baby chick from it's mother is just WRONG. Sorry for the bad review, but I want people to know EXACTLY what they are paying for.

Hi, Very sorry to hear you were offended, however, I feel upset that you missed the point about the day old chicks. We and almost all falconry related people use them as they are a byproduct of the chicken world ( as I explained) I have never ever killed a baby chick and in fact would and have gone out of my way to save young or injured birds and animals. So your review is in fact incorrect and we wonder if you could amend it to that point. Thanks Gary

Amazing all round!
Aug 2020 • Couples
After being bought a hawk walk experience for Christmas and having to reschedule due to COVID 19 we were offered a cancellation spot which we happily excepted.

Gary was full of information and knowledge and the experience from start to finish was amazing.

He’s clearly very passionate about his birds and teaching people all about the different types and hunting methods. He can advise some spots to see wild birds of prey locally that you may not know are close to you.

I would definitely recommend this experience and advise to make sure your battery is full for the photo and video opportunities on offer.

All in all, if you have the chance to go along. Then don’t miss out.

We will definitely be returning
