Sarah-Jane Manarin
Sarah-Jane Manarin
Owner and Founder of Coda Falconry

Sarah-Jane started on her journey with falconry over 11 years ago. She’s always had a passion for flying birds of prey and being involved in wildlife conservation and is extremely proud to have finally achieved her dream of opening up a falconry centre that has bird of prey welfare and education at the heart of all the falconry experiences. As part of her falconry career, Sarah-Jane has been involved with Women in Business projects across the UK and has given talks for anti-bullying campaigns. Due to a high demand in offsite contracts off the back of Coda Falconry’s incredible reputation, Sarah-Jane has now refined her role within the centre and deals with all the major display, film / television work and co-ordinating offsite events around the country.

Luke Callinan
Luke Callinan
Falconer

Luke came for one of our experience days a couple of years ago and pretty much… never left! Luke is now an extremely capable bird of prey trainer in his own right and has taken on the role of a falconer within Coda Falconry. Luke has a lot of knowledge regarding reptiles / creepy crawlies and we’re looking forward to blending these 2 passions into some fantastic new experience days very soon.

Our amazing Volunteers!
Our amazing Volunteers!
We'd be lost without them......

Without the support of our wonderful volunteers, we wouldn’t be able to carry out half the jobs we do! We’re very lucky to have a strong team of regular, dedicated volunteers who support our staff with experience days, looking after the birds and off site events. If you would be interested in joining our team of volunteers, please email us here: info@codafalconry.co.uk and we will be in touch.

Emily Corless
Emily Corless
Head Falconer

Emily has worked at Coda Falconry from the very beginning and has been an integral part of the team since it all started back in 2012. Her hard work and natural ability with the birds paid off and she passed her LANTRA qualification in the summer of 2014. Emily runs the experience days at Coda Falconry and has been key to the growth and outstanding reputation of our centre. Always with a smile on her face and brimming with knowledge, you’ll see Emily at our outside demos as well as holding the fort at Coda HQ throughout the open season at Lee Valley Park Farm.  She accepted the post of falconer at Coda Falconry and we couldn’t be happier to have her as a member of our team. Emily has now been promoted to Head Falconer.

Elliot Manarin
Elliot Manarin
Falconer

 Since volunteering at Galloway Falconry over 6 years ago,  Elliot was hooked on all things birds of prey. His well rounded falconry training and the fact that he has worked with a variety of different raptors made him the perfect team member for Coda Falconry. He also has a bromance with one of the flying team. When he first met Logan the Eurasian eagle owl as young owlet of 6 weeks old, it was pretty much love at first sight (on both sides) so now whenever you see Elliot around the centre, Logan is usually not far behind! Elliot will taking on the role of public demonstrations and offsite displays throughout 2017.
