Lloyd and his wife Rose, are passionate about birds and have been acknowledged as world experts at tracking and in-flight filming with birds for more than two decades. As skilled avian behaviourists and handlers, they specialise in hand raising, imprinting and training all types of birds from starlings and geese to peregrine falcons and eagles for feature films, documentaries, drama, commercials and photography projects. They have a team of trained birds for filming on location and in studios, as well as frequently training new birds for specific commissions, productions and feature films. In Spring 2018, Lloyd and Rose completed their first new theatre show called Our Life with Birds.
