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

Christina Ward

Red Dragon Centre - Cardiff Bay

falconry

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

falconry

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.

Private Bird of Prey Handling & Flying Experience

falconry

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.
