Our Birds

Freddie

Male Harris Hawk

Mia

Female Peregrine Falcon
Mia is a Brookei Peregrine Falcon. She was born in Madrid, Spain but seems to be coping well with the English weather and learning a second language! The Peregrine Falcon is reputed to be the fastest creature on the planet, achieving speeds in excess of 200 mph in a vertical stoop when chasing their prey. As the natural predator and nemesis of the pigeon, Mia is ideal for bird pest control duties. She is also an impressive flying display bird.

Storm

Male Gyr x Lanner Falcon
Storm is a young male Gyr/Lanner Falcon. The Gyr is the largest of the falcon family and lives in Artic regions whilst the Lanner is a smaller Falcon found in South Africa and parts of the Mediterranean. Storm is a hybrid of the two and looks a very handsome boy for it! Storm is used both for displays and for pest control duties.

Gizmo

Male European Kestrel
Gizmo is a European, also known as a Common, Kestrel. He is Emily’s personal bird and has been trained especially for public displays and handling duties. He is also very cute! Weighing in at only 6oz he is too small for pest control but is still a feisty little guy and ideal for photo opportunities and handling by children.
