At the age of 14 Ben Potter’s obsession with birds became his job and life. He began to volunteer at a small Yorkshire falconry centre and later was employed full time. Since then he has trained and flown Hawks, Eagles, Vultures, Kites, Buzzards and Falcons, as well as some more unusual birds such as Ravens, Kookaburras, Pelicans, Serimas and even Ospreys.
In 2007 at the age of 25 he set up his own business – Birds of Prey Displays. He now has about thirty birds which are all free flown every day for nine months of the year, regardless of weather conditions! He travels the UK with the Eagle and Vulture team providing displays at many different events and venues. They have been everywhere from the tip of Cornwall to the Highlands of Scotland, Norfolk to Wales, and just about everywhere in between!
