About Us

About Us

Apollo Falconry is a Falconry business based in Faringdon, Oxfordshire. We’ve been displaying and flying birds for over 10 years, and there isn’t anything we love doing more! Our birds are our life, and we love sharing our love for them with everyone!

Meet The Team:

Konnie Townsend – Head Falconer & Owner

Konnie has been flying and rearing birds of prey since a young age.  She is the one that is more often than not, constantly holding a bird. She is the ‘Head Falconer’ and likes to spew out knowledge to whoever will listen! Her favourite Bird of Prey is the Aplomado Falcon (Look it up now!)

 

Lisa Townsend – Volunteer

Lisa is our scaredy-cat. After having birds in the house for over 10 years, she still has a phobia of them!! You can catch her holding the smallest bird possible (Timmy!) and handling Billie at weddings. Her favourite Bird of Prey is the White Faced Owl (Transformer Owl).

 

Ady Penn – Volunteer

Ady is our most helpful volunteer, and we couldn’t be without him! After falling in love with Kojo when she was just a chick, he has now fallen for more than just the cute looks for an Owl. Although he cannot pick a favourite bird, he adores Vultures and helps to educate the public on why they are needed.

 

Jasmine Townsend – Volunteer

Jasmine only helps us occasionally, however is a fantastic asset to us. As Konnie’s sister, she too has grown up around birds and loves them all. Her favourite, without a doubt, is Koby our Eurasian Eagle Owl. 

 

If you book with us, we will give you a hands-on experience where you will learn all about our gorgeous birds of prey. We love introducing people to our wonderful sport, and we hope you come away with a smile on your face.
