3 Hour Birds of Prey Day
This was a wonderful birthday experience. Ray the falconer was incredibly knowledgable and entertaining. It was a truly up close and personal experience and I would definitely recommend it to others. The only down side was that it had probably too many people at about 25, it would have been better to have kept it to 15. Still a wonderful time was had by all.

Sadly I felt this was a poorly organised event.
The conformation email stated a strictly no spectators rule however a limited amount of additional places could be pre booked at a discounted price.
On arrival additional tickets we being sold at a lower price than I had been charged on-line. The no spectators rule was impossible to enforce as the event was held in a public ground and so there were plenty of people standing around watching (one cheeky family even joined in at one point!)
The event was over booked and although the hosts tried to give everyone a good experience they explained the birds will only fly when hungry and so it would be a struggle to keep the birds flying for too long.
It's a shame the organisation was poor as the hosts were knowledgeable about the birds and very engaging.
