Enjoy the thrills and excitement of falconry at the Birds of Prey and Conservation Centre, with over 70 birds and 30 species.
Eagles, falcons, hawks, kites, vultures and owls will swoop and dive around you as you sit in a beautiful English garden. Our skilled handlers will explain why the birds hunt and fly as they do, where they come from in the wild and how they are trained.
Discover at first hand what makes these birds masters of the skies. Following each breathtaking display you too may hold our birds of prey for The Ultimate Hands on Experience.
A very limited number of places are available to attend and experience the thrill and excitement of flying a good selection of our eagle collection. The experience will start at 11.00am and run for approximately 3 hours. This experience is strictly for over 18 year olds and you must be fit and able to hold up to 10lbs (5 bags of sugar) in weight on your left arm.
The whole family can get up close and personal with our amazing collection of birds of prey, as eagles sore overhead, owls swoop past and prepare to duck and dive as our vultures fly by!
We start our flying displays at 11.30, 1:30 and 3:30 and fly different birds in each display followed by a handling session, so that you can get even closer to these fantastic birds (at no extra cost!) - don't forget to bring your camera!
The centre will be closed to the general public so our team of falconers will be on hand throughout the experience to ensure you safely enjoy your experience.
The event will give you the opportunity to take wonderful photographs of our birds both static in natural backgrounds and in action as one of our Falconers will fly our birds with the aim for you to get the best image possible.
Colin will be on hand to offer tips and advise if required
