CLUB VISITS AND GUEST SPEAKER

 

CHILDRENS CLUBS OR TALKS TO GROWN-UPS ? READ ON TO SEE WHAT WE CAN OFFER YOUR CLUB

 

BROWNIES ? GUIDES ?  CUBS ? SCOUTS ? OR ANY CLUB FOR YOUNG PEOPLE WANTING A SUPERB VISIT COMBINING EDUCATION WITH ENTERTAINMENT.

THESE EVENING VISITS ARE LESS FORMAL THAN OUR SCHOOL VISITS AND CAN BE BIRDS OF PREY BASED OR A COMPLETE MIXTURE OF ANIMALS. THERE WILL BE OWLS AND HAWKS FLYING OVER YOUR HEADS IN THE HALL!!

VERY 'TWO-WAY'- I'LL ASK LOTS OF QUESTIONS AND ENCOURAGE THE CHILDREN TO ASK ME QUESTIONS, THUS KEEPING THEIR INTEREST FUELLED.

 

AFTER A RECENT EVENING AT FOXTON CUBS GROUP:

 

'We had a fantastic evening with Dave and his wonderful birds of prey... and most importantly, all the children absolutely loved it!

Fascinating facts, interactive and hands-on opportunities, important lessons, funny moments, great information on wildlife in general, etc... the cubs were dumbstruck for an hour and a half! and the adults thought it was great too!

We are all still talking about his visit and planning for a return."

1st Foxton Cubs'

   

 

 

W.I., U3A, RETIREMENT GROUPS, GARDENING CLUBS, PHOTOGRAPHY CLUBS, NATURAL HISTORY GROUPS, W.I, OR INDEED ANY CLUB WANTING A GUEST SPEAKER WITH A DIFFERENCE!

 

MY TALKS ARE ALL DIFFERENT, NEVER A BORING RECITAL FROM ONE TALK TO THE NEXT!

I WON'T TALK 'AT YOU', RATHER, ENCOURAGE YOU TO ASK ME LOTS OF QUESTIONS,THIS WAY EACH TALK EVOLVES IN A UNIQUE WAY.

 

USUALLY MY TALKS COVER FALCONRY AND BIRDS OF PREY, HOWEVER IF YOU FEEL BRAVE ENOUGH, HOW ABOUT AN EVENING WITH EXOTIC CREATURES  INSTEAD?!

 

OF COURSE WHAT REALLY MAKES MY TALKS SO SPECIAL IS THE MANY PROPS I BRING ALONG- YOU WILL BE PRIVELIGED TO THE SUBLIME ELEGANCE OF A BARN OWL FLYING CLOSE OVER YOUR HEADS, THE RATHER CHEEKY HARRIS HAWK BRUSHING PAST YOUR EARS AND MANY OTHER 'STATIC' BIRDS SUCH AS THE SLEEK PEREGRINE OR SUPERBLY HANDSOME GOLDEN EAGLE.

 

ALL THIS IN YOUR USUAL MEETING HALL!

I WILL ALSO BRING ALONG VARIOUS PIECES OF FALCONRY EQUIPMENT AND EXPLAIN THEIR USES.

 

FALCONRY HAS A HISTORY OF THOUSANDS OF YEARS SO WE'LL NEVER RUN OUT OF THINGS TO TALK ABOUT!

 

I'm very proud to say that most often than not I'm told by club members 'that's the best talk we've ever had' and that's because of my love and passion for my subject.
