Bird of Prey Flying Displays and Falconry Demonstrations.

 

Standard Displays

Static Displays

A spectacular array of some of the finest birds of prey in the world brought to your venue to enhance the attraction for your guests and other visitors.  Birds of prey have a fascination that draws people to them, making your venue more attractive and providing visitors with photograph opportunities and treasured memories of their visit.  Whatever your space, we can provide a well laid out display of birds of prey and always have expert staff on hand to care for the birds and to chat with your guests.

We provide;

Gala display ( 4 birds, 4 hours best for small galas and not for profit events)

Standard display (6 birds best for shows and events) half or whole days

Large display (10 birds best for major events) half or whole days

Bespoke displays

 

Flying Demonstrations

Falcons stooping to the lure, hawks flying to the fist, there is little to surpass the exhilaration of a bird of prey flying demonstration.  Demonstrations can be tailored to suit your venue and audience (although a reasonable amount of flying room is required) and can also be used as part of an event schedule encouraging guests to stay at an event or venue longer.  We have dedicated outside demonstration display teams that are ideally suited to be able to travel the length and breadth of the country.

Speciality Displays and Demonstrations

Historic Falconry Demonstrations

The history of falconry in Scotland holds a particular fascination for us.  For this reason we can accurately depict traditional falconry techniques and customs.  This is especially good for re-enactment events, historical venues and education as well as general interest and entertainment.  Attention to detail is paramount and so costumes and species of birds used are as historically correct as species available will permit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mounted Falconry Demonstrations

These displays depict an ancient hunting scene with the king or queen (or both) in pursuit of their prey and flying their falcons or hawks from horseback together with their falconers and dogs working with them.  These can be carried out as interactive demonstrations by inviting children from the audience to come and act the part of 'beaters'.  This would have been the case historically when children from local villages would have been asked to assist with the hunt.

 

 

 

 

Interactive Flying Demonstrations

Guests will always remember the day they had an owl fly silently over their heads or had a hawk fly through a tunnel of people or even tried to score a goal with a hawk as the keeper!  Sound like fun?  It really is and it will give guests an experience they will always remember as well as teaching them a lot about the behaviour of birds of  prey.
