Our group Falconry Adventures are the ultimate for fun loving adventurers with a thirst for knowledge and fun. During this falconry experience you will be able to focus on the birds and activities that suit you and your group. We are happy to tailor the activities to suit the youngest or oldest or the fanatical or general amongst you. Whichever end of the spectrum you are working at we will give you a fantastic day out.

Here’s a review from a half day adventure posted on TripAdvisor.

“Oh what a fabulous day. Run by a family, very relaxed and intimate experience. Booked to celebrate my father’s 80th. Excellent event held by Duncan. We had lots of ooohhs and aahhhs from all the family members and great photo opportunities for lasting memories. Even my father’s partner now 88, who is very timid around animals had a most wonderful time. We all engaged with the birds we could, they looked healthy and happy to be with us. I would recommend this to anyone. Thanks again for answering all questions and educating us along the way.”

These are our three main public sessions. Which one have you done and which would you like to do next?
