Thank you so much today everyone enjoyed it so much! One of the young people said that it was the most brilliant time he had ever had! - Charlotte Mallows.

On behalf of myself and my friends, can I say a big Thank You to Jo and Sam for providing us with a great Birds of Prey experience on Sunday 2nd June. We all enjoyed it so much, and would have been happy to carry on for hours!  Jo and Sam were great, and we were all impressed when Jo said she'd only just started doing the Experiences, as she was so knowledgeable and confident we'd assumed she was an 'old hand' at it. We'll all definitely recommend it - in fact, I've already been recommending it to friends and colleagues! - Tracy Underwood

I am writing to thank both you and your team for what I think has to qualify as the highlight of my holiday. I was aware, of course, of both the beauty and the power of such birds as yours, but had never had such wonderful "up close and personal" encounters as you have provided. I believe the ways you have of demonstrating the natural characteristics of the birds by involving your visitors is wonderful, and I am totally sure that I am not the only person going home tonight with some amazing memories of Haven Falconry. Thanks again for such a brilliant time - Bob Brennand

I had taken my son and his partner to the Isle of Wight for the weekend for their birthdays and the Garlic Farm was a visit they were not sure about. However, not only did they enjoy it but finding your two young ladies there showing the birds was the icing on the cake. They were both so informative and helpful and my sons partner did fly the owl which she talked about all the way home. What a wonderful opportunity both for the public and the two young people being able to work with you - Josephine Stephens

On behalf of the chairman and Council I wish to say a very big thankyou for such a wonderful display of birds of prey at the Alresford Show this year, your knowledge of the birds is amazing and your communication skills with the public was outstanding with many excellent comments'.

Just to say many thanks for the brilliant show which you put on for the children last Wednesday. They all – especially me – enjoyed it. All the adults were very impressed too. As a result we have recommended you for future residential trips for WASPs (Wight Association of Small Primary Schools) and in fact the proprietors of Middle Barn Farm are recommending you to older groups of children!

Just briefly to say how much we enjoyed ourselves yesterday, not only the birds but how you explained things as well. Many thanks, a highlight of our holiday. - John and Linda Tenniswood

A thoroughly enjoyable experience which was friendly, thoughtful and fun! - Mr and Mrs C Adams

Just a quick message to say how much the Isle of Wight Learning Zone children (and grown ups!) enjoyed the Falconry session on Monday. The birds were gleaming with health and Paul and his assistant were so patient and knowledgeable. Hopefully we may have encouraged some bird of prey enthusiasts for the future?

Hello Sally
Just a quick line to say how much we all enjoyed the time you spent with us on Sunday 9th September at Cranmore. We all learnt a lot about the birds and really enjoyed holding, stroking and flying them.We all hope everything goes ok with your future plans and good luck with them, we will keep an eye out for that happening.Thank you again, I am sure we will see you again at some stage. - Carol Cox

Hi Paul ...  Just to say 'thank you' again for last Sunday (18/3/12) and the wonderful birds of prey experience. I enjoyed it very much and was impressed with the display and the birds.

Hi Sally
I just thought I'd drop you a note to thank you and Paul (and Sparky and Archie!) for the Hawk Walk - both Katie and I enjoyed it immensely and have taken many happy memories from it - even if Sparky did throw a bit of a tantrum and behave diva-esque after being disturbed by the dog :-)

Many thanks again, and I'm sure we'll pay you another visit if we return to the Island again! I'm certainly very jealous of your gorgeous hawks! - Chris.

Hi Paul and Sally
