Tori and Dave
part of a Year 8 Literacy Project linked to the natural environment, wildlife
and rural crafts, we arranged for David and Tori of Northside Falconry to visit
the school. It proved to be one of the
highlights of the whole project!
enthusiasm for her birds of prey and the art of falconry was infectious, her
sharing of knowledge and stories fast-paced, highly informative, focused and
entertaining. She actively sought the
students’ participation through asking them questions linked to their own experiences,
encouraging them to ask her questions, allowing them to see the birds close up and
inviting them to hold the birds on their own gloved hands. They saw a range of birds feed and fly,
swooping low over their heads across the hall.
It was an exciting and novel experience which kept our students (and staff!) fully engaged, engendering in them a respect for birds of prey and deepening their knowledge, understanding and appreciation of the art of falconry. It stimulated much discussion afterwards as word spread, together with news that Head of School, Miss Byron, had finally been outstared, by Ozzie the Eagle Owl!

"Wow, what a wonderful experience we had on the 1st October with David and Tori for their Falconry Day. From the moment my mate and I arrived it was evident that Tori is a great ambassador for the business – her enthusiasm, love and respect for the Birds brought the whole experience to life.
Both David and Tori obviously have a great passion for what they do as it very much showed. So many highlights and memories that will remain for many years. Highly recommend to anyone interested in Birds of Prey."
