What can I say? I just absolutely LOVED this day. Gerrard was full of information and so enthusiastic about the birds he has, it is impossible not to get drawn into his world. We flew kites, kestral, owls and hawks. Everyone of the different, everyone of the as exciting as the other. By the end of the day we felt... More

Had an excellent half-day falconry experience with Steve and Emily. Spent time with several different types of bird whilst Steve and Emily shared fascination information both about the birds and the history of falconry. Lots of opportunities to hold the birds and see them fly. We will definitely be going back for another visit and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it... More

Fantastic day at Fair Oak Farm getting the chance to fly and handle some very beautiful birds. The whole family enjoyed it immensely all 20 of us, despite the continuous rain. Steve and Emily were fantastic, their immense knowledge of the birds was incredible. Highly recommend.

I've just looked at all my photos and the lovely video, and just want to thank you so much for such a wonderful day, I can't believe how many different birds i flew!
