A little about us
Welcome to Wide Eyes Falconry, founded by Luke and Angela with the aim of sharing their passion for falconry with children. With over 30 years of experience in keeping birds of prey, Luke is a lifelong enthusiast who has always been captivated by the majesty and power of these magnificent creatures. Angela shares his passion for the sport and is particularly dedicated to working with children who have additional needs.
At Wide Eyes Falconry, we believe that children can benefit greatly from interacting with birds of prey. Not only is it an opportunity to learn about these fascinating animals and their place in the natural world, but it can also help to foster a sense of responsibility, patience, and discipline. We are committed to keeping the art of falconry alive by sharing our knowledge with the next generation and inspiring a love of nature and conservation.
Whether you’re a seasoned birdwatcher or have never even seen a bird of prey before, Wide Eyes Falconry is the perfect place to learn and grow. Our experienced team is passionate about providing a safe, fun, and educational environment where children can discover the thrill of working with birds of prey. Join us on this incredible journey and experience the wonder and magic of falconry with Wide Eyes Falconry.
Developing and building Wide Eyes Falconry Club at our new location, Evegate, has been a labor of love for Luke, Angela, and our dedicated volunteers. We started with nothing but a patch of woodland and a dream to create a safe, fun, and educational environment where children could learn about and interact with birds of prey. With hard work, determination, and a lot of elbow grease, we’ve turned that dream into a reality.
We’ve spent countless hours clearing space, building a bird flying area, an archery range, and an axe throwing area. We’ve also constructed aviaries to house our 30+ birds of prey, providing them with a comfortable and secure home. Our team has gone above and beyond to create an environment that’s both safe and welcoming for our young members, and we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve accomplished.
At Wide Eyes Falconry, we’re committed to providing a unique and unforgettable experience for every child who walks through our doors. Our focus is on education, conservation, and fostering a love of nature and the outdoors. We believe that children who have the opportunity to interact with birds of prey can develop a sense of responsibility, patience, and discipline that will serve them well throughout their lives. We’re honored to be able to share our passion for falconry with the next generation and inspire a love of nature and conservation in our community.
