Great to Meet You

Many thanks for all your efforts yesterday – it was a wonderful presentation and greatly appreciated and one that will be long remembered I am sure. I received quite a few comments from people who were fascinated by the amount of information you managed to get over so again well done!

Hawkeye Falconry UK were absolutely fantastic. Extremely informative, helpful, entertaining and organised. We will be looking to book with them again next year for our Country Fair.

Friendly and Professional

I booked Hawkeye Falconry to do a display at my wedding as a tribute to my father as we shared a love of birds and I wanted to do something in tribute to him that made everyone smile. This was booked as a surprise for our guests on the day and everyone loved it. There was a flying display which was just amazing, the birds are so fast, it was incredible to see. All of our guest commented how much they loved it and how different it was.

Alistair was amazing too, so friendly and professional. I would highly recommend Hawkeye Falconry to anyone and would give more stars if I could. I now want to have another event just so I can hire them again!

I cannot thank them enough for an amazing tribute to my father and making all of my wedding guests smile.

A Must!

Cannot recommend this enough! My second experience with Hawkeye – the first one was in Shropshire, the second at their new venue in Nottinghamshire. In my opinion, they are the best around.

Simply The Best

We have just booked Alistair and the team again for 2018 as they never fail to delight our visitors. Professional, highly skilled team with an impressive selection of birds and the best displays that we have ever seen. Highly recommended.

Delight and Amaze Your Guests

Alistair and his birds delighted and amazed our team and their families at our staff BBQ. He was incredibly knowledgeable and shared his passion generously and patiently with the guests, some as young as two! I can highly recommend Hawkeye Falconry. They helped our event to be the best one yet!

Superb Display

We were delighted with the quality of the display from Hawkeye Falconry at our show this year. This was a new act for us and we have only had positive feedback from our visitors, trustees and stewards and had no hesitation in immediately rebooking them for our 2020 show. I cannot recommend the attraction highly enough and Alistair was an absolute joy to work with.

Very Professional and Interactive

“Each year we look to bring something different to our visitors to the show, and after seeing a few falconry displays at other shows it was a must, Hawkeye exceeded all expectations and the displays were enjoyed by the crowds.  Alistair has a great relationship with his birds.  I would highly recommend Hawkeye Falconry UK.”

Amazing

I bought a voucher for myself and my wife in 2018. The whole process was smooth. The experience was such a highlight for both of us. The birds were amazing – Thank You.

Robert Brookes

Excellent, Highly Recommended

I want to thank Alistair at Hawkeye for an absolutely fantastic time. You did a brilliant job of entertaining a bunch of 9 and 10 year olds in terrible weather conditions. The kids were able to fly and handle the birds as much as they wanted to and they really responded well to your fun, informal approach. I was worried that it might feel a bit too ‘educational’ after a day at school but you just went with the flow, answering any questions they had without slowing anything down. It was pitched perfectly for the audience. We had a fantastic time and I recommend you wholeheartedly to anyone is looking for something a bit out of the ordinary for a kid’s birthday party.

I watched the public show at Birmingham Botanical Gardens today and it was great! It was made super interactive and fun with humour involved too and was very relaxed and enjoyable. Very impressive too!

We requested Hawkeye Falconry UK to attend for our wedding. They provided a two hour experience for our day and evening guests. I found Alistair Leese extremely helpful when arranging the booking as nothing seemed to much trouble and he would try to accommodate as best as possible. Upon the day they arrived with plenty of time to set up and everybody could not speak more highly of them. Alistair was very knowledgeable and very patient with the children, he managed to get everybody involved one way or another. This was a fantastic experience and I can truly recommend Hawkeye Falconry UK. Thank you to Alistair and the team! Chris and Becky

Simply Brilliant!

Thanks ever so much. I have never seen a bigger audience watching a falconry display; plus flying two falcons at the same time – never seen that, it was breathtaking. Having the public inside the arena was brilliant. Looking forward to seeing you next year. It looks like you will be coming to the show for many years to come!

The Best Gift

I was given a voucher by my Uncle for Christmas. At first I was a little apprehensive, but after speaking to Alistair on the phone I knew I was set for an exciting afternoon. The birds were majestic and so well trained. I cannot express my thanks anymore to my Uncle and Alistair.

Grace Pursglove

Spellbinding!

Alistair and his team attended a private event in Hertfordshire. Alistair was warm, funny and intelligent. His love and passion for the birds of prey was instantly obvious and we all felt immediately reassured that the welfare of the birds was paramount. I have never seen a more thrilling display of falconry. There was audience interaction (all ages) and a whole load of fun and mind blowing facts. We were thrilled and spellbound and didn’t want it to finish. THANK YOU ALISTAIR!!

“Thank you for your visit last Tuesday and a wonderful display again from the birds at Hawkeye Falconry UK. Everybody learnt some interesting and fascinating facts during the presentation which tied in to their learning in the classroom. The students and staff were thrilled to be able to get so close to the birds and in particular being able to fly them across the room – some great memories made for the students! I wish you a great summer of flying and look forward to your visit again next year."
