"Hi Jason,

Just wanted to repeat how much we enjoyed today and what a great experience it was for the kids - can I come and work for you?

We are putting a display up about the event and have started to try and capture some of the children's thoughts about it. Thought you might like some 'Speech Bubbles' for Promotional Material or just to make you feel even better about what you do!

(We can tell you already love it and that made it all the more special).

Aimee "It has been the best day of school so far."

Jay "It was so good, I wanted to keep all the birds."

Zak - "I learnt a lot and it was really fun."

Poppy - "When I held Blue I wanted to hold him forever. I could have watched for hours."

Kerryann - "I was amazed to see the birds, I'd not seen any of them before."

Maisy - "It was the best day of my life!"

Me (Mrs Jenni Monarch) - "I want to do what you do!" ?

Thanks again, it was the true definition of awesome."

"Hi Jason, I wanted to thank you for the wonderful time we had with you, Rob and your amazing birds yesterday at my husband’s special birthday / family get together. We are thoroughly enjoyed listening and watching you handle your wonderful birds and the opportunity you gave us to hold them and get so close to them. Your visit has made the special weekend extra special and memorable. 

I would also like to add how appreciative and impressed I was with your efficient and very professional, friendly communication at all times during the brooking process. This always makes a difference. I would highly recommend you and the service you provide.

Thank you again Jason, and please thank Rob again for me."

"Dear Jason and the rest of the Falconry UK Team,

Thank you SO much for organising the vulture display during our Alice in Wonderland Wedding tea party reception!
Children and adults alike absolutely adored the vultures and loved also meeting the owl who tagged along!
Guests loved learning various facts about the birds too.
We could not have been any happier with your team's professionalism or enthusiasm on our big day and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for all your hard work. 

Please also thank George, Cairo, Kiwi and the gorgeous owl for us all!"

"Hi Jason, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and Rob for today!

We feel very privileged that even though we couldn't go all the way to Wales, you and the birds were able to come to us! From Archie's point of view, he says it was the best birthday party ever, so it doesn't come better than that!

He also mentioned that he wants to be just like you when he grows up so it has all been quite aspiration as well!

I hope you and the birds enjoy a good rest after all the travelling. Best wishes and thank you again, Laura"

Cardinal Newman School - Hersham

"Wanted to say an enormous thank you for your visit to us, at Cardinal Newman, a few weeks ago. The children really enjoyed your visit and learned a lot of useful information. They all loved having the opportunity to handle the birds.

You were extremely patient and really pitched your presentation appropriately to the age of the children. Many Thanks"

Red Dragon Centre - Cardiff Bay

"To celebrate the release of this Autumns family movie adventure, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole, The Red Dragon Centre in Cardiff Bay hosted a birds of prey handling experience in partnership with Falconry-UK.

From our initial meeting, right through to the event, it was an absolute pleasure to work with the team at Falconry-UK, who not only provided expertise for press support but were reliable, consistent and enthusiastic. The event itself became an attraction at the Centre in its own right, generating additional footfall to the scheme and a wealth of positive feedback from visitors. As a result we are hosting another event before Christmas and we look forward to building a fruitful partnership with Falconry-UK for many future events to come."

St Bernadette's School - Pentwyn, Cardiff

"Our Nursery and Reception children had been sharing the storybooks 'Owl Babies' by Martin Waddell and 'The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark' by Jill Tomlinson. They were really keen to find out more about owls.
Luckily for us, a member of staff had seen Falconry UK at an event, was impressed and picked up their contact details.
We spoke to Jason and Wendy explaining what we had been doing and telling them a bit about our setting and the needs of our children and they were very accommodating, sending us details about what they planned to do and the space they would need. They provided risk assessments, insurance details and certificates and we felt very comfortable and reassured about the children being close to, and handling, the owls.
When Falconry UK arrived at the school, we were very impressed by how well organised they were. They set up quickly, bringing all the equipment required. 
Jason spoke to the children at their level, adding in interesting details for the staff. He was more than happy to answer any questions we had and was very knowledgeable and professional. His respect and love for the birds in his care was obvious to all, even the children responding well and show no fear when handling the birds (owls, hawks and falcons).
Even the youngest children were enthralled for the whole session and the visit created huge amounts of discussion and sparked lots of creative activities on our 'Owl' theme.
We would highly recommend Falconry UK to all educational settings and we can't wait for our next visit."

Private Bird of Prey Handling & Flying Experience

“Our Falconry Day was very special! We celebrated ours son’s 13th Birthday with a Falconry Experience. We were all enthralled by the level of knowledge shared about the wonderful array of birds; owls and falcons that are part of Falconry UK. The love and respect was evident and that made our day more enjoyable!

The selection of birds was wonderful including owls; such as ‘Liberty’ a Male Verreaux Eagle Owl and ‘Simba’ a Spectacled Owl. Feeding the birds and flying Atlanta a Harris hawk was a pleasure. My son had a superb birthday with an experience that he has been able to take away with him and a activity that he wants to pursue further.” 

Tina Hartery – Parent

Private Bird of Prey Handling & Flying Experience

“We would both like to say a big thank you to you for our Handling Experience and Hawk Walk.

You were welcoming and friendly and more than happy to answer any questions we had after you had already given valuable information on the birds, there natural habitat, there own history, feeding, etc.

The experience of handling, flying and feeding the birds and being up close was fantastic, and to watch the way in which the birds interact with you and show respect and affection is only a credit to you and your time and patience. The hawk walk was an experience that was unbelievable, to see Atlanta flying free is a truly honoured pleasure.

My husband who's birthday present the experience was for is still smiling, showing pictures and telling everyone how fantastic the day was. We both hope to see you again soon with our children to enable them to experience the uniqueness for themselves.
