IT’S not often you see birds flying in theatres but you can do just that on Saturday, October 24 at Bridgwater’s McMillan theatre.
Bird experts Lloyd and Rose Buck will perform their hybrid show, (with a live stream and a socially distanced live audience), accompanied by some of their extraordinary feathered friends.
This is an interactive experience not just for bird loving enthusiasts but also for anyone who relishes the opportunity to see birds rarely spotted outside of their wild habitats.
This special evening 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 25 years to rearing and nurturing a wide variety of breeds at their farm near Bristol.
They train their birds specially for filming on location and in studios and are experts at tracking birds and in-flight filming.
Their magnificent avian family includes Lady and Moses the peregrin falcons, Ashley the kestrel, Lily the barn owl, Ellie the northern goshawk, Tilly the golden eagle, Poppy the pigeon and a large number of 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 numerous wildlife and natural history television presenter including Sir David Attenborough, Steve Backshall, Michaela Strachan, Chris Packham, and Kate Humble. The Bucks have also worked on a number of TV commercials and music videos and even a new film for Disney.
You may have encountered the pair as they have appeared as guests on The One Show and the BBC programmes Autumnwatch and Springwatch.
It is not unusual to spot Lloyd on screen with one of his majestic eagles or falcons while 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’.
