TV and Film
Gauntlet is the UK's leading supplier of birds of prey to the TV, Film and Theatre Industries.
With over 20 years experience in the field, Graham Bessant has provided birds for everything from a Shakespeare play to a Walt Disney Feature Film.
Over that time Graham has assembled one of the largest and most highly regarded collections of birds of prey in the country. Gauntlet houses over 60 different species of birds of prey including eagles, vultures, kites, owls, storks, falcons, hawks, corvids (crow family) as well as more unusual birds like seriemas and caracaras.
All the birds can be supplied for a wide range of scenarios across the creative industry sector. Short notice bookings are easily catered for and we also undertake bespoke training programs for more complex commissions.
Listed below is a selection of Gauntlet's more recent work.
