Initally starting Adult Life as a Plumber, I've been working with Birds of Prey for over 20 years, being introduced to the Birds via a customer who gave me my first taste of flying a Kestral, after this I was hooked !!!

I gained experience through Hawking, Agricultural Shows, Truck Fests, the WI, anywhere where people wanted me to display the Birds.

I work alongside "Local Vets" and take on Birds that need rehabilitating and re-introduce them into the wild after.  Having spent the last 16 years working with the Birds I've gained a vast knowledge and experience of not only the rehabilitation of Birds but the care industry too.  I have worked successfully alongside the Birds to help rehabilitate people who have come from various situations and can emphasise with the Birds who have been battered and bruised for whatever reasons - life has thrown them both a curve, together they learn to trust again and move on.

There are many Birds that I've managed to nurse back to health and release back into the wild and a Former Student of mine is now a Falconer and teaches, the rewards are endless for all concerned......

I am now working full time on my own with the Birds of Prey and take bookings for shows, galas, schools, care homes, stately homes and castles and anywhere else I'm asked to go - if there is an event you're planning and you feel I could add to it or if you would like a private flying session please call or email....

My dream is to one day have my Birds on Television to be able to share to a wider auidence and to increase peoples awareness of these lovely Birds and the pleasure that they can bring, but always remembering they are Birds of Prey and the history that goes with them is older than we are.......
