This was a wonderful experience getting up close to owls and being able to fly and hold them. Clare was very friendly and knowledgable and clearly loved all the owls. I would highly recommend Walks with Hawks as a wonderful way to experience these beautiful birds. Overall a really interesting and worthwhile experience.

Clare and Phil took us out on a sunny, crisp November day with their beautiful Harris hawks. The birds flew in the trees above, and glided and swooped down onto our gloved hands for their food. All through the experience we were told what was happening and we were given a wealth of information about their birds and the time,... More

My Wife and I were given Walks with Hawks and The Owl Encounter Vouchers as a Golden Wedding present. About 2 hours for each. Both were stunning. In small groups so got to handle all the birds many times and Clare gave us an amazing amount of detail. A visit that we will both remember for a long time to... More

This was a wonderful experience to get up close and personal with the beautiful birds. As you hold out your arm the birds will fly to you and land on your hand/wrist for a piece of food. If you have a slight fear of birds there really is no need. they are graceful and do not get near your face.... More

We hired Walks With Hawks on our wedding day and they were fantastic! We had previously done an 'owl experience' with them which was also brill (hence wanting them on our big day). Henry was our ring bearer and he was amazing! Guests then had the chance to have photos with the owls afterwards. We had planned to have the... More

Walks with Hawks is a experience not to be missed, not only are the birds amazing, Claire has a wealth of information and knowledge about her birds, and the art of Falconry. I did not realise how may 'sayings and phrases' originate from the ancient art.

I booked an "Owl Encounter" for my wife, and attended myself as a photographer - which means I pay a reduced rate and don't get to handle the owls, but still get a pretty close view of these wonderful birds. There were two other participants on our session - I think the limit is four - and one other photographer.... More

This was a present from our children and they made an excellent choice. Clare was full of interesting information, made a good cup of tea and quite obviously adored her birds. We had the opportunity to fly 2 hawks and a tiny kestrel that was only 8 weeks old and in training! We also met Clare's beautiful eagle. It was... More
