It’s not often you see birds on stage in a theatre and even more rare to see one flying over the audience but ‘Our Life with Birds’ promises to give audiences a rare opportunity to meet Golden Eagles, Peregrine Falcons, hawks, owls, starlings and many more - all raised and trained with the utmost loving care by bird handlers Lloyd and Rose Buck.
Over the last 25 years, Lloyd and his wife Rose have devoted their lives to taking care of birds and mastering the art of capturing them on film. They are, without a doubt, the world’s experts at tracking birds and in-flight filming.
Between them Lloyd and Rose have been involved with over 100 different productions and feature films and have worked with every natural history television star including Sir David Attenborough, Steve Backshall, Bear Grylls, Michaela Strachan, Chris Packham, Kate Humble and many more.
They often appear on camera themselves and are frequent guests on BBC programmes such as 'The One Show', ‘Springwatch' and ‘Countryfile'. From Tilly the Golden Eagle to Poppy the pigeon, it’s unusual to find Lloyd and Rose without one of their feathered family under their arms.
’The Bucks are remarkable people because when they do imprint, they form a bond they can’t break and it means those swans are with them for life’ - Sir David Attenborough
'Looking after our birds is not just our career and job, it is a lifestyle, as you have to be there for them seven days a week, but we love it' - Lloyd Buck
This show is illustrated with Lloyd and Rose’s own film footage and photography and is suitable for all ages. It promises to be an interactive wildlife experience like no other!
