“Getting close to a bird of Prey”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

If you want to get close to a bird of prey, then these are the people to organise it for you, easy to handle friendly raptors and the instructor was easy going plus gave simple easy to understand guidance along with interesting info on falconry and it's history.
Well worth a visit and great value, I loved it.
Looking forward to going back to participate in one of the other experiences offered.

“Superb”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Steve could not have been a better host, he went out of his way to accommodate an awkward date but he didn't let us down.We had only booked the two hour hawk walk for my wife with me as the visitor/photographer. As far as value for money goes - the price was excellent, plenty of flight time with two Harris Hawks and good conversation about birds of prey in general. Steve knows his stuff!
When it asks for recommended length of visit I've put 1-2 hours, but only because the 2 hr walk is the least you should do, take as long as you can afford!

“A Fantastic Morning”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Plenty of flying time with five different birds. Barn Owls, Harris's Hawkes and Eagle Owl. Jo gave expert insights into the life of these birds which added tremendous value to the morning. The meadow/paddock setting is very rustic with a small stream running alongside. It's quite easy to find on the road between Brent Eleigh and Lavenham - close to the Waldingfield turn off. With a thick leather glove the birds fly onto your hand from a post or tree - with a little food as encourgement. The sight of this is truly exceptional as the birds take off and land - their wings gloriously spread - you get a 'real connection' of a human & bird partnership.
