Dave was very knowledgeable about the owls. His talks were really interesting and we learnt a lot about the owls! He was friendly and patient. We booked the two hour owl experience through groupon. It was worth every penny! Thank you Dave and team we thoroughly enjoyed!

Excellent two hours. Started off by a really informative talk about the birds,then various birds produced. Culminated in the actual experience of handling birds.
All conducted very safely, with lots of information, in a friendly and engaging way.
Well done thank thank you very much.
A very worthwhile trip.

Absolutely brilliant, would give the experience 10* if it was available. 2 hour experience with owls and a beautiful Harris Hawk. Exceptional care and knowledge of hawks and owls really showed through together with a thorough look and handling of these beautiful creatures. Fun and entertaining especially walking with the hawk. Such a privilege and honour to meet them all. Cannot recommend this highly enough

Lovely half hour Hawk Walk with Joe, David and Scout the Harris Hawk! It was incredible to have him fly to the glove and see him interact with his surroundings. The guys were so knowledgable and friendly which really made the experience. Scout showed off a few of his other skills along the way, including flying like an arrow between my sister's head and mine as we stood shoulder to shoulder! When else do you get to look into the eyes of a hawk just inches from your face? Brilliant.

Spent a fantastic morning with David and Scout the falcon. David is incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about his birds of prey and we feel privileged to have spent time with them.
The Hawk Walk experience was amazing and nothing like I imagined.
David took us into the forest with Scout, told us a lot about the falcon and explained what we needed to do, then released Scout into the forest. David gave each of us in the group plenty of opportunities to have Scout land on our gauntlet for a tit bit and we were able to walk with him until he decided to fly off. Plenty of time to take photos and have a close up view of this spectacular falcon. I would have happily stayed all day and the memory of time spent with this beautiful falcon will stay with me forever.

We had booked the Hawk walk experience and what can I say, we had the most amazing time. David was very friendly, funny and knowledgeable, he made us feel at ease to be around the birds. We had the opportunity to fly one of the owls that he has in the main enclosure. We couldn't do the full hawk walk due to some cases of bird flu in the area but did get to go to an open tree filled area with David and Scout the Harris hawk and had the most mesmerizing and spectacular time watching him up close. Would highly recommend this. We will definitely be going back.

My family had the most amazing day. 3 generations. Our Daughter was over the moon ,buzzing with excitement , her partner had a great day.My husband said they all learnt lots and lots about the birds, my grandson loved the day and got some great Photos.
The Experience was a birthday treat for our daughter and grandson , the day was bitter cold but no one minded they were all having such a fantastic time. Thank you so much for providing such an amazing time for my whole family, they all said they would love to do it again.

What can I say… absolutely fantastic experience and birthday surprise. We weren’t able to do the ‘longer’ field walk due to cases of nearby bird flu, but that didn’t matter one bit. We went out into an open but tree filled space with David and Scout the Harris Hawk and had the most incredible hour or so watching, learning and being hands on with one incredible bird of prey. PLENTY of ‘glove time’ was given to us and the other couple we attended with, we all had many chances to get personal and witness his beauty up close. As well as from afar with longer distance flights. Despite Scouts impressive claws, there was nothing to worry about, he was so gentle upon landing on your glove. David even showed us a few of Scouts tricks such as flying through our arms and between tight spaces IE our heads next to each other haha. Photos/videos were encouraged but honestly you will be so mesmerised and engrossed in his flight and character it will be hard to catch him! We only managed to get a couple … just forget the phone and enjoy the moment. He is so quick and intelligent. Honestly an unforgettable experience with the fantastic, funny and very knowledgable David and the magnificent Scout. Highly recommend this to anyone!!! We will definitely be back!
