Here at North East Falconry with over 11 years experience we can offer a number of falconry experiences, which are suitable for all. Our most popular is Hawkwalks where we go for about 60 minute walk and the bird flys and follows landing on the guests gloved hand. We offer a number of owl experiences for the owl lovers. Remember bring a camera!

We had a Hawkwalk yesterday. It was such a great experience. We learned so much about Bird of prey during the walk. We were able to get loads of great photos of the Bird flying. Huge thanks to Glen.

Booked the Owl Experience as a surprise for a friend's birthday, Mandy was awesome, knowledgeable and interesting. Great day with the Owls, even got over a my slight fear of birds. Would recommend it to everyone and will definitely be back.
