Hampshire Hawk Walks
Harris Hawk Experiences
We had a very informative afternoon with you and Trinity. It was great to be out experiencing a Hawk's natural behaviour hunting in woodland. More than pleased to get stuck in flushing pheasants, it's all part of the fun.Your passion for what you do really comes across and made for a lovely afternoon.
Thank you very much for the info about the golf course which we are looking forward to checking out.
Once again, thank you very much for a lovely afternoon.

What a great experience, walking through woods at Four Marks with Anita and London! Anita is so knowledgeable that the two hours went in a flash. London flying onto my hand and feeding was amazing. This was arranged as a birthday present by my husband, so thank you…
I booked a hawk walk as a surprise birthday present for my husband. We had a wonderful afternoon, with Anita and her hawk Guinness. The time disappeared between watching Guiness, flying and listening to Anita talking about her hawks. Her enthusiasm is very infectious, and we both learned a lot about falconry. My husband has said it was his best birthday present, and would love a repeat experience.
Thankyou Anita and Sherlock
We just have to say what a lovely afternoon we had yesterday in your company.
We learnt a lot and enjoyed every minute. Sherlock showed us all sides of his character so had you performing as well!!!
A very fixed memory to treasure so thank you both. Just off to clean the sheep dung from my boots now!
Best of wishes

This is the second time for me and some of my family.
This time I took my 92yr old mother along with 4 members of our family who absolutely loved it. We did the woodland walk and from the moment we arrived Anita was amazing. We walked, talked and of course engaged with Sherlock. Can't wait for the next visit. Thank you again
Thank you so much for a really enjoyable Hawk Walk with the majestic Guinness yesterday and all the informative information about your life as a falconer. We all thoroughly enjoyed our walk despite the rain .
I bought the woodland Hawk Walk as a Christmas present for my husband, and it truly was the most magical experience for us both! Anita met us at the woods with two of her beautiful harris hawks, Sherlock and Guinness, who were going to be flying with us on the walk, and before we set out, we learnt about their different characters. Anita is brilliant company, and so passionate about her birds and lifestyle. The walk was at a perfect pace, and we all chatted along the way, flying the birds and learned so much about the mysterious ways of the hawks and the woods. We would both absolutely recommend this experience - I could write about it all day as it was so special. Thank you Anita, Sherlock and Guinness!

What a fantastic experience! Bridget and I had great fun getting to know Caffrey. The woodland setting was beautiful and unspoiled and Anita was very friendly and welcoming. She put us at ease and told us lots about her hawks and their behaviour. I would thoroughly recommend going on a Hawk Walk!
I can’t begin to thank you enough for letting us spend time with Trinity yesterday.
It was fascinating, and a privilege to see a beautiful Harris hawk close up.
I can totally understand why you are smitten with hawks. Trinity is an absolute star.
I still can’t quite believe she was sitting on my arm…!
I will recommend your hawk walks to everyone.
Many, many thanks
Trinity is an absolute star!
Thank you so much for the fabulous walk yesterday afternoon. Both my son Mark and myself thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and keen to return at some time.
It was an honour to meet Guinness, he’s a lovely boy and made my day as he showed off his flying skills. I felt very relaxed with him at all times. Thank you too, for making the walk so interesting as you shared your knowledge and passion of falconry.
It was an honour to meet Guinness
Thank you for a wonderful morning and these photos! London was rather silly taking a bath after getting caught in the rain…it was clearly not the ideal solution for coping with rain soaked feathers😁. Regardless, we had an amazing time and will hope to spend more time with London or some of his fellow feathered friends.

Thank you for sharing London and your special corner of the world with us!
A rather belated THANK YOU from Mark, Oliver, Thomas and I to you and to London for our brilliant ‘hawk walk’!
We weren’t really sure what to expect so the whole experience came as a wonderful surprise to us all. Oliver and Thomas had just the best time, Thomas told me that no-one at school could believe he’d had a Harris Hawk on his arm and been feeding it squirrel. Both the boys learnt so much about birds of prey whilst with you and were so very pleased to have had the opportunity – they’ll remember it for a long time.
Mark also loved his rather belated birthday present – but it was well, well worth the wait. We both appreciated the love and respect you have for your beautiful birds and for nature and the landscape.
Thank you for opening our eyes to something we hadn’t experienced before, it was just great.
A Wonderful Surprise
I just wanted to thank you again for today - the most brilliant experience, enjoyed equally by the young, middle aged and elderly! It was a great privilege to be in a beautiful landscape, on a lovely day with such incredible creatures and to see the interaction between the two of you.
You clearly had the measure of the kids so that they followed instructions and quickly became relaxed and confident.
I hope we have the opportunity to meet up for another walk at a future date.
Very best wishes,
Cathy and Ian Swann.

Thank you Anita and London
Thank you for such an amazing day allowing us to share in your extensive knowledge and walk and fly your beautiful hawk family. It was so much better than we envisaged primarily due to your openness and willingness to share and allow us into your world for a day, we will remember this forever as one of our best days out together.

Just to say thank you for a wonderful afternoon it was amazing. We all had such a super time with you and the weather was great so bright and sunny. It was a real pleasure to hear all of your knowledge throughout the afternoon and your passion for the Harris Hawks is wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed flying London, he is a stunning bird and such a character, I felt so privileged to have been able to do the experience and it is something I will always remember. Thanks also for allowing my parents to have a go as well they enjoyed it so much.
Hope you have a lovely weekend and we will think of you on Christmas Day when you are out flying your hawks, it sounds truly wonderful!

A Wonderful Afternoon
Hats off to Hampshire Hawk Walks and Anita – not forgetting the majestic Sherlock, the Harris Hawk. We had the most amazing, unforgettable experience with them, as a special birthday gift for my husband. It’s actually hard to express it adequately in words – it’s one of those things that you simply have to experience and be there.
The gentle walk across meadows and through ancient woodland was amazing in itself – but add to this the presence of a handsome Harris Hawk flying and swooping overhead, then the walk turns into something very special indeed. Sherlock, the hawk that Anita brought for our walk, was an absolute star. His flights were magical to watch, but nothing can compare with the experience of seeing this incredible creature swooping down to land gracefully on your outstretched, gloved hand.
And throughout the walk we learned more and more about these amazing birds, thanks to Anita’s wide-ranging knowledge and experience. Her passion for the hawks was clear, and it was a real privilege to observe the close working relationship and trust that existed between falconer and bird.
What a morning we had – like no other – memories forever. Thanks to Anita and Sherlock for sharing those amazing hours with us, and for letting us into their magical world.

Wonderful pictures of an exhilarating afternoon with you - thank you so much. It was a lovely Christmas gift from my daughters and so unique. We enjoyed every moment in beautiful surroundings and it will be an event to remember.
You are clearly very passionate about your lovely hawks and I wish you continued happiness with them.
I just wanted to say thank you for a truly wonderful experience yesterday with you and your amazing birds.

It was an absolute pleasure to meet you and your birds. I sincerely hope that we will be able to join you again in the future.

The Saunders family would like to say how much we all enjoyed our time with you and Caspar yesterday. It was amazing and a privilege to see and interact with him, he is such a character! Karen, I and the grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed the experience, particularly the squirrel chase!
Thank you for spending so much time with us.

Thank you so much for your hospitality on Sunday it was certainly a day for Mary to remember, I didn’t know what to expect for her but certainly didn’t realise how quickly attached she could become to an animal, Trinity is a beautiful bird and certainly a joy to be around, I have attached a few photos.
Many Thanks - Kind Regards & Best Wishes

We just wanted to say a big thank you for an amazing experience yesterday. It was lovely wandering through the woods with you and Sherlock and finding out about your hawks. We will definitely be back with the grandson and are looking to go to the Hawk Conservancy on the next inset day.
Hope you found London after his little adventure!
With our thanks
