It’s not often you see birds flying in theatres but in 2018 audiences in Newport will get the chance! Leading bird experts Lloyd and Rose Buck will embark on their first theatre tour accompanied by some extraordinary feathered friends.
This is a truly unique interactive experience not just for bird loving enthusiasts but also for anyone who relishes the opportunity to see birds rarely seen outside of their wild habitats. These special evenings will be led by the Bucks and supported by their film footage as they share their insights, stories and experiences of their world with birds. It’s an event not to be missed.
Lloyd and Rose are passionate about birds. They have devoted over twenty-five years of their lives to rearing and nurturing a wide variety of breeds at their farmstead near Bristol. They train their birds specially for filming on location and in studios and they are without a doubt the foremost experts at tracking birds and in-flight filming. Their magnificent avian family includes Lady & Moses the Peregrin Falcons, Ashley the Kestrel, Lily the Barn Owl, Ellie the Northern Goshawk, Tilly the Golden Eagle, Poppy the Pigeon and many Starlings, Geese and Swans.
Between them Lloyd and Rose have been involved with over 100 different documentaries, drama productions and feature films such as the BBC’s Poldark, Top Gear, The Hollow Crown, and The Flying Engineer. Their birds have appeared in numerous productions for ITV, the National Geographic Channel, RTE in Ireland and CBS in America. They have worked with virtually every wildlife and natural history television star including Sir David Attenborough, Steve Backshall, Michaela Strachan, Chris Packham, and Kate Humble.
The Bucks have also worked on many TV commercials and music videos and even a new film for Disney. You may have encountered this talented pair as they often appear as guests on The One Show and the popular BBC programmes Autumnwatch and Springwatch. It is not unusual to spot Lloyd on screen with one of his majestic eagles or falcons whilst Rose has gained much recognition for appearing with Sir David Attenborough while her Geese followed their speedboat for the Sky TV series ‘Conquests of the Sky’.
