Mark is so enthusiastic and knowledgeable about his hawks and owls - we learnt so much. A walk through woodland and along field margins while Bud (a beautiful Harris hawk) demonstrated his flying for us all, was brilliant. We highly recommend this excellent attraction and...More

Really enjoyed battlefield fun day, lots of effort put in for the children bouncy castle, donkey rides facepaint and to top it all it was free. Well done!

Such an awesome place well run and with the most knowlegable and caring people. Flying Bud through the woods was a tremendous thrill and learning about the owls and holding them was awesome. I highly recommend for anyone with a keen interest in wildlife conservation.

Birds beautiful. Enjoyed the half day adventure. The “up close and personal” with Bud (in the woods) and Boris & Fizzy owls (at center) proved to be a wonderful treat. Owners are caring, informative, neat. Also enjoyed dogs Lucy & Tilly on the flight time...More
