PLEASE MAY I SAY A MASSIVE THANKS, It is great what you are doing giving people open awareness of the magnificent birds we do have left in our country also that they can still be used to perform jobs and our well worth their weight in gold many times over .i do hope some of the younger generation will be looking around a bit more ie not in there living rooms but out in the wilds to see what they can discover and perhaps get involved with these magnificent birds.

My wife and son and myself watched both of your displays today and took part in your first display Hope was fantastic and COLIN was really excited that MONTY was allowed to show us his expertise as well .after the last performance LAYLA made COLIN our sons day extra special after he had stroked the HARRIS HAWK and hugged you to say thank you he was presented by yourself a feather from MONTY. WHAT a  great parting gift my son is over the moon MAY  you have many more years of business and education of people who are willing to listen and learn about the creatures around us.



Quote for web site ' Gasps of amazement as our rings were delivered by the beautiful Olivia. Wedding guests were thrilled to be a part of such an amazing day, enjoying the opportunity to interact with such beautiful birds, Olivia the barn Owl and Hope the Harris Hawk. It certainly was a day with a difference'

Nearly forgot to say one of the guests at the wedding was Graham Dene dj on Smooth FM. At one point during the display, Hope landed on his head, he now has the photos on his web page on Smooth FM. Have attached his photo for you to use.

Kind regards

Just to thank you for a wonderful day on the 16th September, It was truly a fabulous experience and one we will never forget. Your in-depth knowledge of Falconry and Birds of prey was incredible and the setting for the day was.

Thanks again

Sharon and Barry

We had an awesome time, everyone in our group enjoyed the experience and we got some fantastic photos... it was a brilliant end to a week of celebrating our daughters 30th birthday so thanks.


Many thanks Layla. It was a pleasure to meet you and the team - thank you for sharing our special day with us and giving the girls a most memorable day.

I've had loads of feedback about how they loved it especially taking part in the displays.

Hello Layla,

Thank you both for a fantastic show; everyone I spoke to thoroughly enjoyed it.

Layla and Mike

I came to see you at the Chale Show in the Isle of Wight with my mummy and my sisters Hannah and Charley, I am from Liverpool but we went to the Isle of Wight to see my Auntie Karen.

I love birds and I spoke to Mike for a long time about birds and I thought he was very clever, he thought that I was clever too because I know lots of birds and i knew the fastest and smallest bird was a bee hummingbird. I have a bird table in my garden and I can name lots of birds myself and I spend all my pocket money buying food to feed them. I have books on birds and big books on birds of prey because they are my favorite.

I was very happy when you picked me to hold Hope and i was so careful with her and I could not stop talking about it all day, I laid on the floor and my mummy took a photograph when Hope flew over my tummy.

It was the best day in the world and I wanted to say thank you to you both so much and I wanted to show you the photographs that my mummy took and she has attached them to this email because i do not know how to do that bit. my mummy said you may want to put them in your gallery and if you did i could show my new teacher in school about my day. i hope i can come back to see Hope again and you too.

Hi Layla,

Thank you so much for such a fantastic display of beautiful birds of prey. We have received so much positive feedback and are very grateful to you for joining us at the event.

Many thanks and Kind Regards




Just a quick note to say thanks for a brilliant night (last Wednesday at Nannerth) with the Barn Owls and Harris Hawks...we are still talking about it. We've never been so close to such fabulous birds. Rowan (14) now wants to look after hawks and he's also desperately searching the internet for the TV footage of you on Dragons Den.

We appreciate the extra time you gave us to fly the Barn Owl in the lambing shed.

Despite camera failure, have managed to capture the excitement on the kids faces. Some pictures attached

Thanks again for a terrific night

Hi Layla,

Thanks for the great Hawking experience on Monday we both had a fantastic time – one of the best days out ever.

I just thought I would email you to thank you and to send you some of the pictures I took of Hope and Olivia.

I will definitely be recommending you to everyone!



I just wanted to thank you for such a great day with you and the birds. We all really enjoyed it and have not stopped raving about it since.

I look forward to seeing the group photo you took of us and the birds.

I hope business continues to go well.

Best wishes,

Rebecca Beddard
