    Great afternoon with wildlife.
    What a great experience flying all Richard Hall’s stunning birds. Richard was full of interesting facts and history and the one to one experience is something you must try. Some owls can be hand fed when they fly on to your arm. Very peaceful surroundings at St John’s Manor an a great way to spend an afternoon. Will definitely go back again soon.

    Time Flies!
    Incredible experience. Richard is so knowledgeable about all the birds he has and we got to handle a lot of them. 2 hour time slot literally flies in! Beautiful birds and a wonderful afternoon. Highly recommended and I will be back!

    Highlight of our holiday
    All round excellent experience and the time you get to spend with the birds is well worth the money. Although after 90 mins my 9 year old was getting a bit tired, but he generally hates standing for long chunks of time. Richard was great at explaining everything and ready if we did anything wrong. My son only held a small owl. But loved watching all of them rather than participating. We spent all evening discussing our favourites. I really enjoyed it, as did my mother who is 77. Its great family activity for a range of ages.

    Perfect Day With Jersey Falconry
    Jersey Falconry was a fantastic experience, Richard firstly introduced us to the birds and gave us a little insight into their personalities, likes and dislikes some of which are very amusing. He then took us to where he prepared the meat for the birds and then it was time to watch these beautiful birds fly. Hand feeding an owl is something that I will never forget, Twooh was so gentle and very appreciative of his treats. But my favourite bird of the day was Charlotte a spectacle owl who I bonded with almost immediately. If you love hunting birds and want to find out more about them, Jersey Falconry is a must.

    Fabulous afternoon with Jersey Falconry
    A fabulous afternoon with Richard and his birds. Very relaxing yet informative. A privilege to be up close and personal with these incredible birds. What not to like about a Harris Hawk on your hat - and who knew that owls like their neck tickled?Thank you. Totally recommend!

    Wonderful
    We enjoyed an afternoon here with my Son and niece- it was a fantastic experience and they learned lots of information about the beautiful birds. The setting is absolutely gorgeous and it was so helpful to be collected and dropped off. My Son is autistic and was treated with patience and kindness. I highly recommend this experience.

    Wonderful experience
    We had a most enjoyable afternoon with our family at Jersey Falconry in August and would certainly recommend this outing. It was most interesting and educational and our hosts were very thorough in explaining everything that was happening with the birds. Would certainly visit again.

    A great day out with birds you only dream of!
    From the very moment we arrived Richard made us welcome, at ease and like old friends. The information was delivered in a gentle easy way, telling us exactly what we needed to know, how to do what we needed to do and what not to do. The garden setting was fantastic, the birds wonderful and one or two very entertaining with their own personalities. We had the perfect day, slightly sunny, slightly overcast but never a dull moment. From the gentle, beautiful and well behaved barn owl to the stubborn ‘I’ll do what I want’ eagle, we had a fantastic time. To be with family from Australia who have raved about the experience ever since and us locals who have too, would I do this again, sure would, 100%.

    Come fly with me!
    A lovely way to spend a couple of hours. For anyone who wants a great experience or buy as a gift for the person that has everything already. A must do if visiting Jersey. Added bonus is the beautiful location in the walled kitchen garden of St Johns Manor. We went as small group of 4, all getting to fly and feed these beautiful birds.

    Up close and personal with birds of prey.
    A fantastic afternoon at Jersey Falconry in the gardens of St John’s Manor. If you get the chance, or are looking for a great experience to gift, I would highly recommend this one. The afternoon was enjoyed by all 4 of us, flying and feeding a number of different birds including owls, hawks and falcons. Under expert guidance by Richard, we got the experience of flying, handling and feeding beautiful birds in the lovely walled gardens of St John’s Manor, Jersey. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon suitable for all.

An exciting and fun afternoon at Jersey Falconry learning about the birds of prey, getting to wear the falconer’s glove and have the birds fly onto our hand to gather their meaty snack. Exhilarating to get up close to these a beautiful creatures. An unforgettable experience. Thank you to Richard and Peter

I booked this as an usual experience for my partner and we loved every minute.
As soon as we arrived, Richard introduced us to his birds. Each one had their own little personality which Richard encouraged. The bond he has with these birds is beautiful to watch.
Richard was informative and patient throughout our visit. Talking us through each species as we were able to spend time with them.
We talked about this experience the most throughout the rest of our visit.
We would highly recommend it to anyone and next time we visit the island, we’ll definitely be back.
(I also want a baby turkey vulture now! He was adorable)

Saw the falconry advertised on a website dedicated to activities in Jersey and were instantly interested. Richard was patient, informative, and friendly as he guided us on handling the birds and showed a true passion for falconry. Would absolutely recommend to any tourists in Jersey looking for a new exciting activity to try. We loved every moment and would definitely consider booking again when we next visit Jersey.
