What a fantastic afternoon we have had. My son was given this treat as a present from his grandparents and what a great experience it was. A very warm welcome from Jay, Jake and Naomi followed by a lovely walk to fly Mowgli (Hopefully spelt right). Thank you and we hope to see you again very soon.

We had a fantastic afternoon with Charlie the Harris Hawk and Jake. We walked through the countryside to a quiet field and spent an hour and a half flying Charlie. It was so hands on and we were able to get up close to the hawk which was fantastic. Would highly recommend West of England Falconry, so friendly and professional.
