I had a half day falconer experience booked which was a gift for my husbands birthday. We both had a fantastic time in our group. I was a spectator only but it was still amazing! Reece was our expert and he was so warm, funny and knowledgeable about birds of prey. My husband was able to fly 2 owls, one falcon, a vulture and in the end even hold a bald headed eagle! The grounds, where the flying experience is set, are beautiful and quiet. Everyone in our group asked loads of questions and got in depth replies from Reece. It was beautiful to get to know birds of prey more and see them in flight. I would highly recommend this half day experience! Worth every penny and it made a wonderful surprise birthday gift for my husband. Thank you Reece for a very special day at your falconry
Have just done my Falconer for the day experience here and let me tell you it doesn't disappoint. Reece our expert for the day was extremely knowledgeable and passed on his knowledge in easily remembered fashion. Then you get to fly the birds, which is such an amazing experience. I won't list all the birds we flew but the fact one was the Bald Eagle should tell you everything that you need to know. Also the lunch in the hotel was superb. This was my second time doing an experience and will not be my last.
