Read some of my visitor comments and see for yourself how much my days are enjoyed.

Dear Andrew,

On behalf of both Mark and myself, I wanted to write and say how much we enjoyed the Falconry Adventure day yesterday. It was great fun, extremely informative and such an experience to get "up close and personal" with your beautiful birds. You have a wonderful setting and to be able to see the hawks hunting with the help of Bertie and the ferrets was brilliant; just a shame the rabbits got away!!!

I do hope Elvis behaves himself at the weekend with your next group and doesn't try another disappearing act on to the roof .....

Seriously though, we both loved the day, it exceeded expectations and we would be very keen to hear about any Hunting days that you may put on around the country, and as we said, we are prepared to travel. We were also very impressed with your B&B room which has been delightfully furnished and was extremely comfortable with a delicious breakfast.

Many thanks again for making the whole experience so good.
Best wishes from us both,

Jenny & Mark

Harris Hawk with children on Bird of Prey Experience days

 Hi Andrew,
Thanks once again for such a fantastic bird of prey experience and for letting us get to know your amazing birds.  It was refreshing to get out of London,  forget my worries and just enjoy nature at its best.
I shall be recommending the experience to all my friends and family.
Kindest regards,

Dear Andrew

I’ve had a wonderful, interesting and enjoyable day doing something completely new to me. The birds are amazing to watch and handle and there is so much to discover about every aspect of them. Andrew shared his knowledge in such an easy and engaging way with everyone in the group that we all relaxed and enjoyed the moment.

 Things that make a great day out

 A warm and friendly welcome. 

For ten years now my personal and friendly atmosphere has set the scene for a fantastic up close falconry experience with magnificent birds of prey. Held in the rolling Leicestershire countryside I provide a fabulous day out that will be remembered forever. Some of the things that I think are necessary for a great day out are:

  • The right group size, I usually work with up to six participants and find four to six is good. It gives good interaction, people ask different questions and always seem to enjoy the company as well as the birds.
  • Good location, I have my own property with a lovely outlook over the hills in a quiet countryside location. See pictures below.
  • Getting up close and learning about these fascinating birds of prey. I am happy to share a lifetimes knowledge with all my visitors.
  • Feeling the privilege of having effectively wild birds fly to your fist and give you their trust.
  • Plenty of hands on time with the birds.
  • A host that likes to see people enjoy themselves. Believe it or not this is the best part of the job.

wasn't looking forward to standing around for ages.
They both came back buzzing, really informative and enjoyable. I'm sure
they will be going back and have recommended it to several people."

Of my 57 years on earth this is one of the better days, thank you

Easy to get to.

Our location of Leicestershire in Central England means we are well placed for easy travel. Using the motorway network, journeys from many locations are quick and simple. Leicester is just a bus ride and Nottingham, Derby and Birmingham are just around hour away with Luton, Stansted, Oxford, Stoke on Trent and Sheffield only 1 hour 30 minutes away..

Many of our visitors travel from as far as London and all think the effort has been worthwhile. We try hard to give days to remember and so far all our customers agree.

We are close to the local attractions of Rutland water and Foxton Locks if you are looking to fill your day with another local visit.

Yet another top day, Brilliant

Thanks for a lovely day.

Another visitor having a great day out.
We're not called Bird on the Hand for nothing. Maybe we should change to Two Birds on the Hand.

Bird of prey Day Gift Vouchers
Spectators are welcome(there is a charge) but they are up close to the action and can ask questions too. They can take photos and regularly have birds fly past their ears, in fact they get the same experience as the participant apart from not having the birds on their hand Elaine, a spectator, at the end of the day said "I expected to be bored stiff but it was great fun".However, I don't want you to buy a gift for some one and find they are not going to enjoy it. That's why I give a unique money back guarantee.
